AEI Debate on “The Upside of Inequality”

I summarize my Top 10 NYT bestselling book, The Upside of Inequality: How Good Intentions Undermine the Middle Class for the American Enterprise Institute with Steven Roberts.  The book argues that today’s knowledge-based economy is constrained by properly trained talent and the economy’s willingness to take risk, rather than labor or capital. I recommend recruiting ultra-high-skilled immigrants, restricting perennial trade deficits, and lowering corporate taxes.
