About Too Much

Each and every week, Too Much explores excess and inequality, in the United States and throughout the world. We cover a wide swatch of territory, everything from the latest executive pay outrage to the most current research insights on how staggering income and wealth divides are impacting our health and our happiness.

A project of the Program on Inequality and the Common Good of the Washington, D.C.-based Institute for Policy Studies, Too Much began publication in 1995 as a print quarterly, then became an online weekly nine years later.

Too Much, ever since its inception, has been edited by labor journalist Sam Pizzigati, the author, most recently, of the award-winning Greed and and Good: Understanding and Overcoming the Inequality that Limits Our Lives.

Subscriptions to the weekly Too Much email newsletter are free. You can read the current issue online or check our archive for back issues. To get Too Much in your e-mail inbox every Monday, just sign up here.

What they’re saying about Too Much . . .

Bill Moyers riffs on Too Much on his nationally televised PBS program, Moyers and Company, February 12, 2012. Watch the video.

“There’s a good resource called Toomuchonline.org that I recommend to reporters and anybody else interested in a reality check on America’s economy. Sam Pizzigati, a veteran labor journalist, runs and edits┬áthe site, which is chock full of useful information. The site has a simple message; it argues that “our society would be considerably more democratic, prosperous and caring if we narrowed the vast gap between the very wealthy and everyone else.”
