Interview with Economist Joseph Stiglitz: 'The American Dream Has Become a Myth'
The finance industry is to blame for the growing divide between the rich and poor in the United States, says Nobel Prize-winning economics professor Joseph Stiglitz. In an interview with SPIEGEL, he accuses the industry of preying on the poor and buying government policies that help them get richer.

Another tenured left wing nut in a left wing school spouting the usual socialist cry of "unfair! unfair! The rich must pay their share!"
The USA is STILL the land where anyone with a little bit of sweat can turn a simple idea into something that results in wealth and providing jobs for those who wish to work.
The Democrats are fighting hard to bring an end to it - especially with lefties like Stiglitz - who has probably never held a real job in his entire life - doing everything to belittle and denigrate our free enterprise system.
Lenin and Marx are probably smiling in their graves. Germans, weren't they?
Strongly defend the right to free speech and civil discourse.

The USA is still the land where anyone - by the sweat of others - can turn a simple idea into something that results in wealth...
From Bertolt Brecht "Alfabet" (1934):
Reicher Mann und armer Mann
Standen da und sahn sich an.
Und der Arme sagte bleich:
Wär ich nicht arm, wärst du nicht reich.
Translated without rhyme:
Rich man and poor man
Stood there and looked at each other.
And the poor man turned pale and said:
If I weren't poor, you wouldn't be rich.
"A nation of sheep soon begets a government of wolves."
