A groundbreaking work that identifies the real culpit behind one of the greatest economic crimes of our time — the growing inequality of incomes between the vast majority of Americans and the richest of the rich.
Paul Pierson and his co-author, Jacob Hacker, demonstrate convincingly that the usual suspects — foreign trade and financial globalization, technological changes in the workplace, increased education at the top — are largely innocent of the charges against them. Instead, they indict an unlikely suspect — American politics. The winner-take-all economy is primarily a result of winner-take-all politics.
