The Trouble With BillionairesBook - 2010
Our society tends to regard large fortunes as evidence of great talent or accomplishment. Yet the vast new wealth isn't due to an increase in talent or effort at the top, but rather to changing social attitudes legitimizing greed and government policy changes that favour the new elite. Authoritative and eye-opening, The Trouble with Billionaires will spark debate about the kind of society we want.

Explains how our culture allows just a few people to accumulate tremendous wealth, and makes a convincing case that this economic inequality is one of the biggest problems we face.
