Book on rising inequality in America

Chrystia Freeland, the US managing editor of the Financial Times (FT), reviews what she describes as a “fine new book” on “the most important US economic trend, and hence most critical domestic issue – growing income inequality” (FT, 25 August): Claudia Godlin and Larry Katz, The Race Between Education and Technology, Belknap Press.

However, I’m not convinced by her contention that “this trend is hard to discuss in the US”. This blog alone includes numerous references to the debate on rising inequality in America.
