The Rich Skip The Line While The Rest Of Us Wait 12

For the rich, red tape is never a problem: for a price, it can be cut and a person moved to the front of the line. New York Times business reporter Nelson Schwartz joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how easy for some it is to buy convenience – and about how corporations have shifted strategies to cater to the wealthy in order to increase the bottom line. His book is called “The Velvet Rope Economy: How Inequality Became Big Business.”
