A good summary of the causes of rising inequality.

From Joseph Stiglitz today: “We are not embracing a politics of envy if we reverse a politics of greed.”

The best short summary I’ve seen of how we got here.  The imbalances we are seeing in our societies are not sustainable in a democratic society, but I’m not sure we’re seeing a turning point yet.
