BOOKCLUB- The Price of Inequality (Joseph E. Stiglitz )

America currently has the most inequality, and the least equality of opportunity, among the advanced countries. While market forces play a role in this stark picture, politics has shaped those market forces. In this best-selling book, Nobel Prize–winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz exposes the efforts of well-heeled interests to compound their wealth in ways that have stifled true, dynamic capitalism. Along the way he examines the effect of inequality on our economy, our democracy, and our system of justice. Stiglitz explains how inequality affects and is affected by every aspect of national policy, and with characteristic insight he offers a vision for a more just and prosperous future, supported by a concrete program to achieve that vision.

    Hi luz, Sue, and Eduardo. All rose suggestions sound great. I would like to also suggest the cafe at books and books in Coral Gables. The parking garage right across the street is super cheap and the cafe opens at 9 am. I'm Ok with where you guys decide but I thought this would be another good option. Should we put it up to a vote? It would be for the December book and if we don't like the place we chose, we can change it for January

      Books & Books would be good, although we would need to sit outside there as we would at Cafe Demetrio. The tables are too small inside.

      If it's just a few of us inside is fine. They have seating for about 5. If not, outdoors is good too

    Good discussion today (Stiglitz book). There were only three of us but we enjoyed the excellent buffet at Camila's Brazilian restaurant. Lots of healthy and tasty food. I hope we go to Camila's again! ;-) The buffet was $13 something and was all you can eat.

      We missed all the other members who signed up and didn't make the meeting. Did anyone show up at the Filling Station and not see our note?
