Editorial Reviews

Review

“A timely polemic against globalization and marketization.… [Robert Kuttner is]… something of a national treasure.… Kuttner has tirelessly poked holes in dominant economic narratives and consistently espoused a social-democratic populism that is looking much better than some of the alternatives these days.”
- New York Times Book Review

“Timely and compelling.”
- Robert B. Reich

“Using historical synthesis and reporting, [Kuttner] explores how [unfettered global finance’s] resurgence captured the political process and cut off policy approaches that could have protected the interests of workers and nations, leading to disillusionment with political institutions and the rise of ideological extremes. Kuttner’s call to recognize and fight this status quo doesn’t come with easy solutions, but it will inspire readers to think deeply about our complex and troubling times.”
- Booklist

“[A] vigorous critique.… Capitalism as we know it today is anti-democratic―and not likely to relinquish power without a fight. A useful resource for setting agendas.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“Illuminating.… [A]ccessible to lay readers.… [T]hought-provoking.”
- Publishers Weekly

“Robert Kuttner combines economic acumen, a gift for narrative, and genuine passion in his persuasive new book. In his telling, the issue isn’t whether national economies should be open to foreign trade or finance. It’s whether the rules of the global economy are set up to benefit ordinary citizens or merely economic elites.”
- Jacob S. Hacker, Yale University, and coauthor of Winner-Take-All Politics

“Kuttner brilliantly brings together two strands of thought: explaining both the economics and politics of global capitalism and how our society has abandoned core principles of fairness and equality. The rise of inequality helped pave the way for Donald Trump―a figure out of step with basic American values. Kuttner reminds us of the urgency with which we need to get back to a more just society.”
- Joseph E. Stiglitz, Columbia University, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, and best-selling author of The Price of Inequality

“Standing on the shoulders of Karl Polanyi, Bob Kuttner revives the lost art of political economy in this absorbing and important analysis of wild markets, assaults on labor, and profound changes to institutional rules.”
- Ira Katznelson, Columbia University, and author of the Bancroft Prize-winning Fear Itself: The New Deal and the Origins of Our Time

“Conventional wisdom has it that our income disparities and dysfunctional politics are the consequence of inexorable and uncontrollable developments in technology, market competition, and globalization. As Robert Kuttner argues in this superb book, they are instead the result of our own policy choices.”
- Dani Rodrik, Harvard University, and author of Straight Talk on Trade and The Globalization Paradox --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Robert Kuttner, cofounder and coeditor of the American Prospect, is a former columnist for BusinessWeek, the Washington Post, and the Boston Globe. He holds the Ida and Meyer Kirstein Chair at Brandeis University, and lives in Boston. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
