Product description

Stiglitz offers a comprehensive list of easy-to-understand progressive remedies that will find favor with many readers.-- "Library Journal"

The policy shop of every 2020 Democratic candidate for president would be wise to pore over People, Power, and Profits and cherry-pick its best ideas.-- "New York Times"

[Joseph Stiglitz] is an insanely great economist.--Paul Krugman
