Please note that this talk will occur on Monday instead of Wednesday.
We are happy to welcome back Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist.
The average income of the bottom 90 percent of Americans has fallen back to the level of 1966 while the top 1 percent of the top 1 percent has seen their incomes grow more than five fold. David Cay Johnston will explain how government policies make this happen while destroying jobs, fostering monopolies, and risking massive disasters from crumbling pipelines, bridges and dams.

From July 2011 until September 2012 he was a columnist for Reuters, writing, and producing video commentaries, on worldwide issues of tax, accounting, economics, public finance and business. Johnston has been board president of Investigative Reporters and Editors since June 2012.
