Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week we hear from David Cay Johnston, an investigative journalist for The New York Times who focuses on the subject of taxation. He speaks on his most recently published book Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense and Stick You With The Bill, an expose of hidden subsidies, rigged markets, and what has been called corporate socialism. It follows his previous book, the best-selling Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig Our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich--and Cheat Everybody Else.
Johnston received the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting "for his penetrating and enterprising reporting that exposed loopholes and inequities in the U.S. tax code, which was instrumental in bringing about reforms." Prior to joining the New York Times in 1995, he's worked for various major daily papers around the country and studied economics at the university of Chicago and elsewhere. He now lives in Rochester, New York area where he spoke on February 16th at an event sponsored by the Rochester Labor Lyceum, which has presented public talks and debates on topics of labor and social justice since 1897.
