2015 marks the 150th birthday of The Nation magazine. To commemorate this historic anniversary, The Commonwealth Club is proud to present a conversation about our country's inequality crisis – a core Nation issue on which the magazine has long been sounding the alarm. The wealth controlled by the top tenth of the top 1 percent has more than doubled over the past 30 years in the United States, approaching unprecedented levels. What does this mean for the political process? The environment? Our civil society? Our civic culture? The future of our democracy? What can be done?

From groundbreaking investigative journalism, to cutting-edge cultural commentary, to unmatched political analysis, The Nation has been at the forefront of American politics and culture since its inception by anti-slavery abolitionists in 1856.

Co-presented by The Nation and The Commonwealth Club of California
