The Price of Inequality: Discussion


Inequality is not inevitable. But in recent years well-heeled interested have compounded their wealth by stifling true, dynamic capitalism. They have made America the most unequal advanced industrial country, distorted by key policy debates, and fomented a divided society. In The Price of Inequality, Nobel Prize-winning economist and best-selling author Joeseph Stiglitz exposes the effect of the inequality on our democracy and our system of justice while examining how monetary policy, budgetary policy, and globalization have contributed to its growth. With characteristic insight, he diagnoses our weakened state while offering a vision for a more just and prosperous future.
