The Great Divide

The Great Divide review ç eBook or Kindle ePUB Ermath Stiglitz delves into the irresponsible policies deregulation tax cuts and tax breaks for the 1 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 fro Nice collection for Stiglitz fansThe growing disparity in income and wealth between the richest Americans and the rest of us is very much in the news these days but Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stigliz has been writing about it for a long time This book brings together short pieces that appeared in publications such as Vanity Fair and the New York Times warning of the dangers of ineuality as long ago as 2007The book is in nine sections The first section he calls a Prelude because it discusses the 2007 2008 recession and the response to it that built the background for the increasing ineuality seen today The middle sections contain articles describing the disparity personal reflections from Stiglitz s life dimensions of ineuality such as student debt and health care causes for ineuality such as a tax system that favors the elite and conseuences of the ineuality The later sections elaborate on his argument that such ineuality is not inevitable but is a political choice and explore the international picture in countries like Japan Australia Spain China Singapore Scotland and even Mauritius The final section consists of articles in which Stiglitz outlines the kinds of actions America should take to combat ineuality In an Afterword Vanity Fair editor Cullen Murphy interviews Stiglitz responding to conservative critics who claim that the rich create jobs Each of the nine sections of the book is preceded by a lengthy introduction providing an overview of the topic of that sectionThis anthology format has strengths and weaknesses It allows for the presentation of a broad range of topics relating to ineuality and it is interesting to see how the topics develop over the course of the time period in which the articles were written On the other hand since the articles are generally short Many were op ed pieces readers new to a topic may feel they need for data or a longer explanation In addition because they were written at different times for different publications there was a great deal of repetition eg Thomas Piketty s book Capitalism in the Twenty first Century is discussed at length in at least two of the articles as well as the introduction to Part I Readers who want in depth presentation of Stiglitz s thinking would probably be happier reading one of his other books such as The Price of Ineuality that contain data and a comprehensive exposition of his ideas but those who want a broad survey or who already admire him and want to hear from this influential thinker will welcome this book
