Many Americans worry about the economic divisions in our country. In «The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution,» law professor Ganesh Sitaraman describes the founding generation of our country as a society of almost unprecedented economic equality. In conversation with Paul Constant of The Seattle Review of Books, he will discuss the intent of our founders and the fact that the Constitution they created does not include safeguards against capitalist extremes. Despite the belief that equality was essential for the preservation of our democracy, the U.S. Constitution lacks provisions to prevent the upper class from seizing power. Now that the wealthy are doing just that, Sitaraman asserts that Americans face a choice: Will we accept rising economic inequality or will we rebuild the middle class and reclaim our republic?
