Collateral Damage (2016)
  • Todd Swanstrom, University of Missouri-St. Louis
Todd Swanstrom, the Des Lee Professor of Community Collaboration and Public Policy Administration at UMSL, describes how private and public institutions continue to oppress the poor through predatory lending, predatory policing and an oppressive court system. Swanstrom contends that North County suburban lives are increasingly brittle and difficult, but those lives could improve through stronger and better government.
