9780393248579: The Great Divide: Unequal Societies and What We Can Do About Them

A singular voice of reason in an era defined by bitter politics and economic uncertainty, Joseph E. Stiglitz has time and again diagnosed America's greatest economic challenges, from the Great Recession and its feeble recovery to the yawning gap between the rich and the poor. The Great Divide gathers his most provocative reflections on the subject of inequality, probing for answers to the greatest threat to American prosperity and explaining its role in the country's ongoing malaise. As Stiglitz ably argues, a healthy economy and a fairer democracy are within our grasp, if we can put aside misguided interests and abandon failed policies. Opening with the essay that gave the Occupy Movement its slogan, "We are the 99%," later essays in The Great Divide reveal equality of opportunity as a national myth and explain reforms that would spur higher growth, more opportunity, and greater equality.

Descrizione libro WW Norton Co, United States, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 238 x 154 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In The Great Divide, Joseph E. Stiglitz expands on the diagnosis he offered in his best-selling book The Price of Inequality and suggests ways to counter America s growing problem. With his signature blend of clarity and passion, Stiglitz argues that inequality is a choice-the cumulative result of unjust policies and misguided priorities. Gathering his writings for popular outlets including Vanity Fair and the New York Times, Stiglitz exposes in full America s inequality: its dimensions, its causes, and its consequences for the nation and for the world. From Reagan-era to the Great Recession and its long aftermath, 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 more unachievable myth. With formidable yet accessible economic insight, he urges us to embrace real solutions: increasing taxes on corporations and the wealthy; offering more help to the children of the poor; investing in education, science, and infrastructure; helping out homeowners instead of banks; and, most importantly, doing more to restore the economy to full employment. Stiglitz also draws lessons from Scandinavia, Singapore, and Japan, and he argues against the tide of unnecessary, destructive austerity that is sweeping across Europe. Ultimately, 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 inequality 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 more prosperous, more equal society.
