Stiglitz and Kuttner at AFL-CIO Book Club Today, Tomorrow(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Nobel Prize-winning author Joseph Stiglitz and author Robert Kuttner will speak at free AFL-CIO Book Club events this week. Stiglitz speaks today from 3-5p on his new book The Price of Inequality: How Today’s Divided Society Endangers Our Future, examining how 1% of Americans got control of 40% of our wealth, how this threatens democracy and our economy and how we can find a better path. Tomorrow at noon, Kuttner – whose latest book is Debtors’ Prison: The Politics of Austerity Versus Possibility – demonstrates how austerity “serves only the interests of the bankers and financial elites who crashed our economy while holding back the economy the rest of us live in every day.”
