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.

About the Author

Zac Tate is an economic strategist at the Hottinger Group.



Capitalism is failing those who work for a living, according to a 2017 opinion poll taken in the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany. Years of declining wage growth, government bailouts and corporate scandals inform this skepticism, along with a growing awareness of how globalization and technology seem to compensate only the higher echelons of society.
