via Stiglitz, De Blasio and Warren team up against inequality | Business | DW.DE | 12.05.2015.

Amazingly, a Nobel winning economist (former chief economist of the World Bank, New York’s Mayor, and a radical senator all combine forces against inequality. They defend the US middle and working classes, who have had a raw deal. Most importantly they provide practical solutions.

As a conservative not a liberal, I do not agree with all the proposals but there are some excellent ideas.

Interestingly, some of these remedies could be relevant to the UK as well, especially the new Conservative government that is looking to be one-national-conservatives.

Apart from the UK, these proposals are relevant other European countries, especially Germany.

Thoughts? You’re views matter. Why don’t you share them below?

  1. Absolutely. Stiglitz is good for, I think, making globalization work and creating fairer and more equal society. Some of his ideas are amazing. Thank you for sharing this info.
