Matt Taibbi

The acclaimed investigative journalist examines the increasingly unequal distribution of wealth in America and the effect this has on the criminal justice system. As violent crime has been on a steady decline for the past two decades, why, Taibbi wonders, have incarceration rates among the poorest Americans exploded during the same period? Meanwhile, Wall Street executives directly responsible for the 2008 global financial crisis have walked away from criminal charges, even earning bonuses in some cases, and prosecutors seem unable to bring high-profile, white-collar criminals to justice.  Original air date 4/30/14
