Last week, ProPublica published the results of its first-of-its-kind analysis and investigation into a little-known but pervasive shift in the way debt is collected in America and the results are troubling. According to their investigation debt collection lawsuits are far more common and aggressive in black communities than white ones and are squeezing America’s Black Neighborhoods dry. Joining me today to discuss the investigation and its findings is Paul Kiel who covers business and the economy for ProPublica and is one of the co-authors of the report. You can also follow Paul on twitter.
