Learn from each other and discuss this New York Times bestseller and longlisted book for the National Book Award and Andrew Carnegie Medal. Heather McGhee's specialty is the American economy-and the mystery of why it so often fails the American public. From the financial crisis of 2008 to rising student debt to collapsing public infrastructure, she found a root problem: racism in our politics and policymaking. But how did this happen? And is there a way out? McGhee finds proof of what she calls the Solidarity Dividend: the benefits we gain when people come together across race to accomplish what we simply can't do on our own.
