Dollars & Sense is honored to co-sponsor a Tax Day conversation with David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter and author of Free Lunch andPerfectly Legal, this Tuesday, April 15th, from 7-8:30 pm.
While at The New York Times, Johnston won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for “for his penetrating and enterprising reporting that exposed loopholes and inequities in the U.S. tax code, which was instrumental in bringing about reforms.” He is the author of several best-selling books on tax and economic policy, including: Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense and Stick You With The Bill and Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig Our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich – and Cheat Everybody Else, a New York Times bestseller about the U.S. tax system that won the Investigative Reporters and Editors 2003 Book of the Year award.
His new book, an edited collection, is Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality (New Press, 2014). Johnston presently writes for Newsweek and Tax Notes. He teaches at Syracuse University and lives in Rochester.
