    Story
    (382)

    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."
    "A very important message and perspective"

    Story
    Where does The Price of Inequality rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top in terms of the importance of his perspective. Our economic system needs compassion plus enlightened self-interest.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The support and evidence that he uses to back up his views. He is not ideological, but clearly pragmatic finding things that work.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish our leaders would pay attention to points made in this book to make our economy work better.
