I’ve been travelling, returning home for promotional appearances, and juggling it all with being the mother of a five-year-old.
Mahira Khan
We will be returning to historical levels of inequality. We’ll view post-war America as a kind of strange interlude not to be repeated. It won’t be the dreams that we all had that virtually all incomes go up in lockstep at three percent a year. It hurts to give that up.
