Incarceration Nation + The Prison Industrial Complex
First program: Michelle Alexander - Incarceration Nation
Second program: Angela Davis - The Prison Industrial Complex
With more than 2.3 million people behind bars, the United States leads the world in prisoners, leaving far-more-populous China a distant second. More than one in 100 adults in the U.S. is locked up, an all-time high that is costing the states and the federal government tens of billions a year. Some states spend more on prisons than they do on higher education. Additionally, some five million people are on probation or parole. The conservative "Economist" magazine says, "Never in the civilized world have so many been locked up for so little."
