P&P Live! Jennifer Taub — Big Dirty Money: The Shocking Injustice and Unseen Cost of White Collar Crime - A Panel Discussion

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, October 6, 2020 - 6:00pm

How ordinary Americans suffer when the rich and powerful break the law to get richer and more powerful--and how we can stop it.

Jennifer Taub's Big Dirty Money details the scandalously common and concrete ways that ordinary Americans suffer when the well-heeled use white collar crime to gain and sustain wealth, social status, and political influence. Profiteers caused the mortgage meltdown and the prescription opioid crisis, they've evaded taxes and deprived communities of public funds for education, public health, and infrastructure. Taub goes beyond the headlines (of which there is no shortage) to track how we got here (essentially a post-Enron failure of prosecutorial muscle, the growth of "too big to jail" syndrome, and a developing implicit immunity of the upper class) and pose solutions that can help catch and convict offenders.

Julie Zebrak, panel moderator, is a DC attorney and political consultant.

Jesse Eisinger is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, ProPublica editor, and author of The Chickenshit Club.

Barb McQuade is a former US Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, MSNBC legal expert, and University of Michigan law professor.

Elie Mystal is the Justice correspondent at The Nation

Joyce Vance is the former US Attorney for the Norther District of Alabama, MSNBC legal expert, and University of Alabama law professor
