The Global Financial Crisis and Its Remedy

Capitalism – Fall Semester Syllabus

What’s Holding Back the World Economy?


The world economy continues to stumble.  Developed nations still see-saw in progress.  The rich get richer and the poor still suffer.  Joseph Stiglitz and Hamid Rashid explore why the global economy is still not succeeding. (You can also read Progress and Poverty, where Henry George questioned exactly the same anomaly, almost 150 years ago).

Henry George, still current!

Nothing Like This Has Ever Happened Before

It is as though an immense wedge were being forced, not underneath society, but through society. Those who are above the point of separation are elevated, but those who are below are crushed down.” — Henry George, Progress and Poverty, 1879
