  • On June 18, Foreign Affairs posted Gillian Tett's review of Inequality and Instability, at here. Much of it is behind a paywall but here is a snip: "Galbraith's timely and provocative book adds some economic and statistical ballast to the vague rhetorical slogans of the Occupy protesters. Drawing on meticulous academic research, it argues that the main source of the growing inequality across the world in recent years has been not industrial change, educational reform, or geopolitical shift but the financialization of the modern world."
