"Wolff’s calm, scholarly prose contains a powerful warning for all of us: a democratic society cannot survive the awesome concentration of wealth that has occurred in America since the 1970s." —Barbara Ehrenreich
"Wolff’s analysis slices through the fog about the supposed health of the American economy through the go-go ’80s and ’90s. . . . There [is] no ignoring the consequences of the massive inequality Wolff describes." —James Ledbetter, Newsday
