    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.

    This powerful, unsettling book gives us a rare glimpse behind the closed doors of global financial institutions by the winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economics. When it was first published, this national best-seller quickly became a touchstone in the globalization debate. Renowned economist and Nobel Prize winner Joseph E. Stiglitz had a ringside seat for most of the major economic events of the last decade, including stints as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers and chief economist at the World Bank.

    It has long been recognized that most standard of living increases are associated with advances in technology, not the accumulation of capital. Yet it has also become clear that what truly separates developed from less developed countries is not just a gap in resources or output but a gap in knowledge. In fact the pace at which developing countries grow is largely determined by the pace at which they close that gap. Therefore, how countries learn and become more productive is key to understanding how they grow and develop, especially over the long term.

    The United States bills itself as the land of opportunity, a place where anyone can achieve success and a better life through hard work and determination. But the facts tell a different story - the US today lags behind most other developed nations in measures of inequality and economic mobility. For decades, wages have stagnated for the majority of workers while economic gains have disproportionately gone to the top one percent.

    In The Euro, Nobel Prize-winning economist and best-selling author Joseph E. Stiglitz dismantles the prevailing consensus around what ails Europe, demolishing the champions of austerity while offering a series of plans that can rescue the continent - and the world - from further devastation. Hailed by its architects as a lever that would bring Europe together and promote prosperity, the euro has done the opposite. As Stiglitz persuasively argues, the crises revealed the shortcomings of the euro.

    The current global financial crisis carries a "made in America" label. In this forthright and incisive book, Nobel Laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz explains how America exported bad economics, bad policies, and bad behavior to the rest of the world, only to cobble together a haphazard and ineffective response when the markets finally seized up.

    Face à la montée des indignations dans un contexte de crise financière mondiale, le célèbre Prix Nobel d'économie Joseph E. Stiglitz explique pourquoi le système économique actuel ne fonctionne plus pour la grande majorité de la population, pourquoi l'inégalité s'aggrave de façon considérable et quelles en sont les conséquences. Son fil conducteur est clair : l'inégalité a un prix, elle est à la fois la cause et la conséquence de la faillite du système politique et elle alimente, au sein du système économique, une instabilité et une inefficacité qui l'aggravent à leur tour.

    La crise mondiale, Joseph E. Stiglitz, Prix Nobel d'économie, l'avait annoncée. Le marché roi, l'obsession du court terme, les déréglementations, la libre circulation des capitaux en sont les principaux responsables. Mais il est temps désormais d'étudier les causes fondamentales du désastre : d'après Joseph E Stiglitz, la crise n'est en effet pas exclusivement financière, et ses répercussions économiques ne peuvent dissimuler qu'il s'agit en vérité de la faillite d'un système conjuguée à une crise morale.

    From Nobel Prize-winning economist and best-selling author Joseph Stiglitz, author of Globalization and Its Discontents, this is the essential audio guide to the future of Europe. Solidarity and prosperity fostered by economic integration: this principle has underpinned the European project from the start, and the establishment of a common currency was supposed to be its most audacious and tangible achievement. Since 2008, however, the European Union has ricocheted between stagnation and crisis.
