Chart of the day (and an invitation)

Well, it’s pretty much too late to give any actual warning, but I realized I ought to promote this year’s American Values speaker on my blog.   Tim Noah, former Slate columnist, now TNR writer, and all-around expert on inequality will be speaking about his fascinating work on inequality in America on campus at 5p today (details here or here).   Anyway, I invited Tim to be our speaker because his work on inequality 1) is very timely; 2) very interesting; and 3) most definitely speaks to fundamental issues of American values.

His original Slate series is here.   And here’s the great slideshow that goes along with it.  Lots of great charts.  I think this one is my favorite:

Yeah– that’ s not good.  So, if you’re in the neighborhood try and come out and see Tim Noah’s talk at 5p today.
