    NPR OnPoint: Women, The Workplace, And ‘Second Generation’ Gender Bias

    American women have come on strong all over the place. But at the tip-top of the corporate workplace world, the Fortune 500, it’s still just 4.2 percent female CEOs. And that under-representation at the top gets echoed all over the workplace world.

    Why is that? The answer is complicated. But one piece of it is now being called “second generation” gender bias. Subtle and not-so-subtle dynamics at work that push women away from the corner office. How’s it work? We’ll ask.

    More relevant to our last conversation, and the article actually mention's Cowen's book and his presumption that rising inequality is somehow just an accident of history, rather than a series of policies to benefit some over others. "Sorry, neoliberals: Inequality is driven by greed, not technology
    A new study shows low wages are really caused by low minimum wage, weakened unions and the effects of globalization"

    I just read this really good article yesterday about the resent and anger among white men in the face of their (perceived?) decline and loss of ground to women, people of color and LGBT peoples. Enjoy....
