Stiglitz

The Great Divide

America’s Growing Income inequality

stiglitz.jpgHow has America become the most unequal advanced country in the world, and what can we do about it? In his latest book, 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.

He is a columnist for the New York Times and Project Syndicate and has written for Vanity Fair, Politico, The Atlantic, and Harper’s. He teaches at Columbia University and lives in New York City.
