HASH(0x96a46ee8) von 5 Sternen Nobody does it better. 5. Mai 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am not an econ major, (History). This man has helped me understand the economy, dynamics, and fairness. He is brilliant, easy to follow, and very interesting. All of his books are superb, and if you ever have the chance to hear him speak, go, watch, listen and learn.

Von Kathy E. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I heard Mr. Johnston speak and was inspired to buy his book. It is a collection of essays by a variety of outstanding people, looking from different directions at our national picture - economic, family, political, demograhic. Decribes the startling problem of the growing inequality that has expanded severely since the mid-seventies.

HASH(0x96a56e40) von 5 Sternen All the problems clearly defined, but no solution applied 10. Mai 2014
Von C. Wagner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
So far not drawing a great deal of attention, Johnston’s compilation makes many excellent points. Personally, I would have preferred a compilation by a single author, but the facts are plainly stated.
The cost of being middle class (mortgage, health and child care) rises more rapidly than wages and two family incomes means no back up when one of the incomes go badly, thus stifling upward mobility.
Stigitz argues that middle class spending is too weak to support the consumer spending that has historically driven our economy. (I have wondered for decades how the purchase of rubbish from slave labor foreign countries could drive our economy.) The weakness also holds back tax receipts, since we all know the rich will avoid payment whenever legally possible.
Unlike the essence of "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, children of limited means are unlikely to live up to their potential. Without the benefits of middle class +, better education does not guarantee better income.
The children of upper echelon families enter better funded schools, for the most part, better prepared, as money will buy, than their less financially fortunate counterparts. For example, when in Indiana was the last time a poor student won the Lilly Scholarship?
The pay and working conditions of the service sector is often better than revolting. O’Brien’s section on health care for the underclass should be read by all…
The fact is, even without Johnston’s documentation, life is unfair, and this book fails to document the root cause of this social catastrophe. Churchill is alleged to have said that the best argument against democracy is a five minute discussion with a voter.
Do our marginalized citizens even vote or do they vote single issues such as Jesus, baby killing, guns, etc.?
The problems are here bared, but the solutions have not yet been applied.

HASH(0x970ee0a8) von 5 Sternen David Cay is the best source of information for what's really going on out there! 3. Juni 2014
Von Kevin Blackwood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have read all of DCJ's books, thoroughly. More than once because every thing he writes is dead-on accurate. And important. I love his writing style, gets right down to the white-meat without a lot of blah, blah, blah. He makes salient points from the get go and then backs them up with a boat load of facts and examples.

Buy his books, they're great!

And you can take that all the way to the bank....

HASH(0x9773cd38) von 5 Sternen Comprehensive, infomative, and shocking 26. Mai 2014
Von Eric Laursen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Numbers are tricky things. They can throw complicated problems into sharp relief, or they can obscure the fundamental issues to the point of hopelessness. Often, the first is quickly followed by the second. The burgeoning debate over the numbers that Tomas Picketty employs in his recent book to demonstrate a secular trend toward income inequality is a classic example of this unfortunate pattern at work. It's a good thing, then, that we have David Cay Johnston's wonderful collection of essays on aspects of inequality in America. This methodical exploration of inequality has plenty of data to back it up. Unlike Picketty's book, however, it digs deeply into the process that created the new, oligarchic US, and the ways in which it has impacted--and extended itself through--such areas as education, health care, family viability, debt, hunger, and homelessness.
Johnston's thesis is encapsulated by three short words close to the beginning of his Introduction: "In choosing inequality ..." What makes this book so useful is that it locates the inequality that's been building for the past four decades in specific decisions made by specific people--not in "globalization," the technology revolution, or some other allegedly irresistible trend. He doesn't offer a laundry list of recommendations to eliminate inequality, although he and his contributors mention quite a few along the way. What he offers instead is something more valuable: the understanding that if one group of fantastically wealthy people can remake the US economic system to suit their desires, the rest of us can organize to take it back--or, more precisely, to move it forward into the next stage of the movement for economic equality and freedom. The absence, or extreme weakness, of countervailing forces in our society isn't something we just have to accept.
"Inequality" doesn't read like a collection of pieces, but like a book, a very lucid one that takes us systematically through the root causes and consequences of this trend. It makes clear that this isn't normal--either a "new" normal or any other kind.This message threads through the excellent contributions that include Elizabeth Warren on bloated executive pay and the crisis of the middle class, Edward Wolff on household wealth inequality, Moshe Adler on the biases toward inequality within mainstream economics itself, and Johnston on gender pay discrimination and the high cost of US health care.
I found this book an excellent corrective in a debate that's showing signs of drowning in numbers. Read it if you want to understand inequality at the grassroots rather than in the abstract.
