    The top 1 percent of Americans control 40 percent of the nation's wealth. And, as Joseph E. Stiglitz explains, while those at the top enjoy the best health care, education, and benefits of wealth, they fail to realize that "their fate is bound up with how the other 99 percent live." Stiglitz draws on his deep understanding of economics to show that growing inequality is not inevitable. He examines our current state, then teases out its implications for democracy, for monetary and budgetary policy, and for globalization. He closes with a plan for a more just and prosperous future.

    Grant says: "Dense, but important."
    "An outstanding book"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Price of Inequality the most enjoyable?

    The subject, inequality in the U.S., is treated in a simple, informed, and elegant way. Dr. Stiglitz is able to provide an excellent argument of the many ways in which government and businesses transfer wealth from the low and middle earners to the top ones. It defies the mainstream concepts and explains why markets do not work well. In addition, it provides useful suggestions on how to reduce the inequality. The narration by Paul Boehmer is superb.
