The Roaring Nineties: Seeds of Destruction

Stiglitz, Joseph E.

The 1990s promised prosperity for the world: a new era of unprecedented economic growth, with capitalism American-style reigning supreme. So why did it all go wrong? As chairman of Clinton's Council of Economic Advisors and Chief Economist at the World Bank, Joseph Stiglitz was uniquely placed to watch first-hand as the '90s unfolded. This revealing book rewrites the history of the 1990s to show how a misplaced faith in free market ideology created problems that could cost us all dearly. But more than that, it lays out a blueprint for the future. The '90s, Stiglitz concludes, witnessed a misguided attempt to achieve growth on the cheap - and we must learn from our mistakes or pay the price for years to come.
