Galbraith, James K.

Inequality and instability a study of the world economy just before the Great Crisis / [electronic resource] : James K. Galbraith. - New York : Oxford University Press, 2012. - 1 online resource (xiv, 324 p.) : ill.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

James Galbraith demonstrates that finance is the driveshaft that links inequality to economic instability. The book challenges those, mainly on the right, who see mysterious forces of technology behind rising inequality. And it also challenges those, mainly on the left, who have placed the blame narrowly on trade and outsourcing. 'Inequality and Instability' presents straightforward evidence that the rise of inequality mirrors the stock market in the U.S. and the rise of finance and of free-market policies elsewhere.
