Product description


Entertaining and gripping . . . For those at the helm, the philanthropic plutocrats and aspiring "change agents" who believe they are helping but are actually making things worse, it's time for a reckoning with their role in this spiraling dilemma. I suggest they might want to read a copy of this book while in the Hamptons this summer (Joseph Stiglitz New York Times Book Review)

In Anand's thought-provoking book his fresh perspective on solving complex societal problems is admirable. I appreciate his commitment and dedication to spreading social justice (Bill Gates)

Winners Take All boldly exposes one of the great if little-reported scandals of the age of globalization: the domestication of the life of the mind by political and financial power and the substitution of 'thought leaders' for critical thinkers. It not only reorients us as we lurch out of a long ideological intoxication; it also embodies the values -- intellectual autonomy and dissent -- that we need to build a just society (Pankaj Mishra, author of Age of Anger)

In this trenchant and timely book, Anand Giridharadas shows how the winners of global capitalism seek to help the losers, but without disturbing the market-friendly arrangements that keep the winners on top. An indispensable guide for those perplexed by the rising public anger toward 'change-making' elites (Michael J. Sandel, author of What Money Can't Buy)

A brilliant, rising voice of our era takes us on a journey among the global elite in his search for understanding of our tragic disconnect. Thought-provoking, expansive, and timely (Isabel Wilkerson, author of The Warmth of Other Suns)

A trenchant, humane, and often revelatory investigation by one of the wisest nonfiction writers going (Katherine Boo, author of Behind the Beautiful Forevers)

Book Description

An insider's trenchant investigation of how the global elite's efforts to "change the world" preserve the status quo and obscure their culpability.
