I have recently read this book in order to discuss it with some people in my life who agree with the author far more than I do. They have a tendency to dominate the conversation and be very pushy when we talk about economic issues. I can tell that there are things misleading, if not completely incorrect, about this book but I was hoping to get some help solidifying my arguments. Has anyone else read this? If so would you be willing to help me?
Things that stand out to me:
a focus on just income inequality and not wealth
- A focus on an improvement in poverty situations but a disregard for the decline of the middle class and focusing on that being the reason and not the growing wealth of the top 10%
