In this program, Bill Moyers investigates what lies behind the disparity between rich and poor in the United States. In three telling examples, Moyers draws attention to a question of fairness involving the politics of privilege: the impact of NAFTA on a Pennsylvania mill town; financial deregulation in the early 1990s that led to WorldCom's scandalous collapse; and the story of a failed attempt to reform Alabama's state income tax system.
