Joseph Stiglitz on 'The Price of Inequality'Download audio (MP3)
America prizes itself as the land of opportunity. But Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz says that the vast and growing inequality between the haves and have-nots has shot the American dream of opportunity to the ground. Stiglitz believes it's high time for economic rehab and reform, arguing that the consequences of doing nothing will affect not just the poor, but also the rich.
