Rom Scandinavia Singapore and Japan and he argues against the tide of unnecessary destructive austerity that is sweeping across EuropeUltimately Stiglitz believes our choice is not between growth and fairness with the right policies we can choose both His complaint is not so much about capitalism as such but how twenty first century capitalism has been perverted His is a call to confront America's economic ineuality as the political and moral issue that it is If we reinvest in people and pursue the other policies that he describes America can live up to the shared dream of a prosperous eual society. Stiglitz is an important voice in economics and he is working hard to help non economists understand that capitalism comes in many different varieties depending on the policy decisions made by the people in power where it is practiced This collection of material much of it previously published in a variety of columns and articles in business and policy journals centers on the way capitalism as currently practiced in the United States has moved our economy toward a two tier reality without much room for a benefit to the middle class His main point is that we don t have to abandon capitalism to improve the efficiency and essential fairness of our economy

Ts long aftermath Stiglitz delves into the irresponsible policies deregulation tax cuts and tax breaks for the percent that are leaving many Americans farther and farther beyond and turning the American dream into an ever unachievable myth With formidable yet accessible economic insight he urges us to embrace real solutions increasing taxes on corporations and the wealthy offering help to the children of the poor investing in education science and infrastructure helping out homeowners instead of banks and most importantly doing to restore the economy to full employment Stiglitz also draws lessons f. Dr Stiglitz is a very accomplished economist with a decidedly liberal point of view His focus on income ineuality and the necessity of addressing the issue is very timely What I don t understand is his insistence on demonizing those who may not agree with him or believe there are other solutions to the problem In recent articles I ve read it s clear there are some 1%ers and even some of those crass and greedy bankers who agree with his conclusions But Dr Stiglitz s gratuitous demeaning descriptions of those who disagree with him will only make it difficult to resolve the issue and detracts from the positions he is advocating

    I bought this book in hope to discover Stiglitz's conjecture on ineuality hoping to do so by reading his latest book His promotion of it on Bloomberg might have precipitated this choice If only I knew this would be a mere collection of articles of his most of which are freely available online and an interview Not that the positions he espouses in this book are particularly alien to me; I just felt a bit ripped off to buy a book that only
