A Capitalism for the People: Recapturing the Lost Genius of American Prosperity
Luigi Zingales, Robert C. McCormack Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance and the David G. Booth Faculty Fellow, Chicago Booth
".....a stimulating essay on the nature of American capitalism and the issues that will determine the pace of America's relative decline." Financial Times
In his new book, A Capitalism for the People, professor Luigi Zingales contends that the roots of American capitalism are dying, and thus drifting toward the more corrupt systems found throughout Europe and much of the rest of the world. Far from being the open society it once was, where the American Dream was within everyone's reach, America is degenerating into a corrupt form of capitalism where people in the middle and at the bottom are getting squeezed, while people at the top grow richer.
Join Professor Zingales as he takes a forceful look at how pro-business forces have overwhelmed the pro-market principles that made American capitalism great, and presents the economic reforms needed to get things back on track.
