Summary
In Created Unequal, Galbraith explains the relationship between economic policy and the structure of pay. He shows why "knowledge" workers have done well and why service workers have not why consumer industries have lost ground and why the true service economy is smaller than you think. Whether you are in the aircraft industry (rich) or the garment business (poor), medicine (up-and-coming despite HMOs) or residential construction (in deep decline), you will be surprised and provoked by his findings. Most of all, Galbraith gives us all hope that we can reclaim our country through economic understanding, commonsense policy, and political action
