Economist Joseph Stiglitz shows that economic inequality in the US is bad and getting worse. The causes are our dysfunctional style of capitalism and a political system that serves only the elite.

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

Part 2 has the conclusion of the talk and selections from the Q&A. The talk--though short on solutions--is a lucid and very listenable survey of the problems we face--and their causes.
Stiglitz gave this presenttion in Washington, D.C., in June 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 "Yum-Yum tree") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Joseph Stiglitz is former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors and former Chief Economist of the World Bank.
