About Too Much

Each and every month, 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, became an online weekly nine years later, and now appears monthly.

Too Much, ever since its inception, has been edited by labor journalist Sam Pizzigati, the author, most recently, of The Rich Don’t Always Win: The Forgotten Triumph over Plutocracy that Created the American Middle Class, 1900-1970 (Seven Stories Press).

Subscriptions to Too Much 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 the first Monday of every month, just sign up here.

What they’re saying about Too Much . . .

“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 the 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.”
