Wealth & poverty

A worldwide bestseller when first published in 1981, Gilder's classic was returned to print with a new introduction that reminds us how far we have come and how far we have to go. Centralized economic planning, he argues, has failed because it assumes wealth is tangible and limited. Capitalism recognizes the truth - that wealth is transitory, that its source is creativity, courage, and technological adventure. Without entrepreneurs, there is no wealth to distribute.

Review: Wealth and Poverty

User Review  - Craig Fiebig - Goodreads

A singularly important work on the development of economic thought. Prescient when written in 1982. Re-reading it today is a sad commentary on our inability to learn. Read full review
