Roosevelt Must-Reads: What’s Not Working

October 11, 2019

Each Saturday, a Roosevelt staff member will share 3-5 articles that they consider must-reads.

This week, Roosevelt Communications Manager Ariela Weinberger is reading an Axios article on how automation will negatively impact the racial wealth gap—especially for Black workers—and a New York Times op-ed from economists Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman on the future of tax justice and how absurd it is that “the working class is now paying higher tax rates than the richest people in America.” She’s also listening to a PitchFork Economics podcast episode that examines the origins of neoliberalism and how the economic theory took hold in the US.
