Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute, a conservative think tank based here in New York, talks with me about BROKE USA on CSPAN-2's "After Words." It was taped in May on the convention floor of Book Expo America and first aired on June 12th. Click here to watch.
Also, a real thrill to see my name in a smart column by Joe Nocera, pictured, one of my favorite business writers. In his weekly "Talking Business" column for The New York Times, Nocera describes BROKE as an "important, scathing book" and then quotes me as the fellow whose ideas on reforming our home lending system he finds most appealing.

Also, this wonderful review from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. Highlights: "What makes BROKE, USA so readable is Rivlin's skill at telling a complex story through engaging characters...[an] incisive, important new expose." I also appreciate that the reviewer, Karen R. Long, credits me for all those hundreds of hours I spent with those part of the poverty industry for their side of the story. "Rivlin's work is scrupulously fair," Long writes.
