Recommendations

Here is a list of material that relates to the issues of classism and rigged economics that we think are particularly worthy of recommendation. We are always looking for material to add so please contact us if you have any suggestions. Please keep in mind, however, that we do not want this list to become too long and overwhelming. The idea is to offer a reading list that is serious, accessible, manageable and up-to-date, on the subject of classism and rigged economics, as defined in our Glossary.  To assist people who are new to this subject, or new to this particular take on it, we have put together a "Starter Pack".
