How Dr. King Shaped My Work in EconomicsTHE GREAT DIVIDE August 27, 2013, 8:58 pm

"The night before the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, I had stayed at the home of a college classmate whose father,Arthur J. Goldberg, was an associate justice of the Supreme Court and was committed to bringing about economic justice. Who would have imagined, 50 years later, that this very body, which had once seemed determined to usher in a more fair and inclusive America, would become the instrument for preserving inequalities: allowing nearly unlimited corporate spending to influence political campaigns, pretending that the legacy of voting discrimination no longer exists, and restricting the rights of workers and other plaintiffs to sue employers and companies for misconduct?"
