Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy

An Agenda for Growth and Shared Prosperity

Joseph E. Stiglitz

This book tackles the prevalent issue of economic inequality in America - a country that prides itself on being the land of opportunity. Despite this, the US lags behind developed nations when it comes to measures of inequality and economic mobility. Author Joseph E. Stiglitz debunks the common belief that these stark conditions are inevitable consequences of market outcomes, globalization, and technological progress. He argues that American inequality is a result of misguided structural rules that actually stifle economic growth. This book provides valuable insights on the policies that need to change to encourage greater equality without sacrificing growth.

+1. Great book. ReWriting the Rules of the American Economy by @JosephEStiglitz is also worth a read. One might not always agree with Stiglitz (although I often do) but he always makes you think.      source
