The evening is part of “Rules Change: Resetting the Playing Field for Corporations, People and Democracy,” is a three day conference organized by the UMass Donahue Institute at the request of McGovern and four other non-profit policy groups.
Smith is a former Washington bureau chief of The New York Times and Emmy-winning PBS documentarian. He shared a Pulitzer Prize for the Pentagon Paper series and won another Pulitzer for his reporting from Russia. “Whole Stole the American Dream,” is unique not only for its meticulous assembly of facts about the decline of America’s middle class, but also because Smith, a longtime journalist, chose to make a set of change recommendations at the book’s conclusion.
While Smith’s talk is free and public, the full three-day gathering requires pre-registration. For details, follow the registration link at: http://www.ruleschange.org
