Jason Hartman talks with Robert Frank, author of The Winner Take all Society, The Economic Naturalist: In Search of Solutions to Everyday Enigmas; Falling Behind: How Rising Inequality Harms the Middle Class and many more!
In ‘The Winner-Take-All Society’, Bob Frank discussed the fact that more and more of current economy and other institutions are moving toward a state where very few winners take very much, while the rest are left with little. Part of it is attributed to the modern structure of markets and technology. This view can be seen as a call for serious changes in policy, because the well-being of the average citizen is by most accounts the main goal of social and economic policy.
Robert H. Frank is the Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management and a Professor of Economics at Cornell University’s S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management. He is a monthly contributor to the “Economic Scene” column in The New York Times.
