Product Description

Product Description

A forceful argument against America's vicious circle of growing inequality by the Nobel Prize–winning economist.


America currently has the most inequality, and the least equality of opportunity, among the advanced countries. While market forces play a role in this stark picture, politics has shaped those market forces. In this best-selling book, Nobel Prize–winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz exposes the efforts of well-heeled interests to compound their wealth in ways that have stifled true, dynamic capitalism. Along the way he examines the effect of inequality on our economy, our democracy, and our system of justice. Stiglitz explains how inequality affects and is affected by every aspect of national policy, and with characteristic insight he offers a vision for a more just and prosperous future, supported by a concrete program to achieve that vision.

I have no economics background at all so I found it was quite hard to read, but it was worth it. It gave voice and numbers to the feeling I've had that something is amiss in our system. A thoroughly informative and interesting book.
