Book

Inequality and Instability: A Study of the World Economy Just Before the Great Crisis

Oxford University Press, USA, 2012

Galbraith, James K.

Inequality and Instability 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.
