Economist Joseph Stiglitz shows that economic inequality in the US is bad, and it is getting worse. The causes are our dysfunctional style of capitalism and a political system that increasingly serves only the economic elite, not "the 99%."

Our economic inequality is bad for democracy, bad for the U.S. economy, even bad for capitalism, Stiglitz argues.

Stiglitz's talk is short on solutions, but it is an excellent, lucid, and very listenable survey of the problems we face--and their causes.
Stiglitz gave this talk, in Washington D.C., in 2012, on his tour supporting his book, The Price of Inequality: How Today's Divided Society Endangers Our Future (Norton, 2012).

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "heavy fire") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Previously broadcast, as NWN #414, in February 2016. Files downloaded from the links, below, are identified as #414.
