The 2008–2009 global recession and its aftermath have called into question the very viability of capitalism. So says economic strategist Zac Tate in this succinct, diagnostic essay intended for the savvy reader as well as the policy expert. He argues that the economic fruits of technology and globalization go to those with capital to invest, leaving those without assets to pay the price for these changes. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends this thought-provoking article for its alternative perspective on a highly topical issue.
In this summary, you will learn
- How policy changes and deregulation have benefited the wealthy at the expense of the poor, and
- Why governments need to partner with private industry to reform capitalism.
