The feral rich are becoming more savage as the wealth gap grows, despite the economic crisis. How do they get away with it and what can be done to stop them?

In this podcast New Internationalist co-editor Vanessa Baird, and Chavs author and Independent columnist Owen Jones, discuss their ideas for turning the tables on the super rich and stopping the demonization of the poor. From tax avoidance to a maximum wage, is it possible to teach the feral rich when enough is enough?
