Mark Crispin Miller hosts Chris Lehmann, author of Rich People Things: Real-Life Secrets of the Predator Class. In Rich People Things, Chris Lehmann lays bare the various dogmas and delusions that prop up plutocratic rule in the post-meltdown age. It’s a humorous and harrowing tale of warped populism, phony reform, and blind deference to the nation’s financial elite. As the author explains, American class privilege is very much like the idea of sex in a Catholic school-it’s not supposed to exist in the first place, but once it presents itself in your mind’s eye, you realize that it’s everywhere. Barbara Ehrenreich says that the book is “social criticism at its scorching-hot best.”
