Rigged: How Globalization and the Rules of the Modern Economy Were Structured to Make the Rich Richer 

By Dean Baker

There has been an enormous upward redistribution of income in the United States in the last four decades.

Baker explains how rules on trade, patents, copyrights, corporate governance, and macroeconomic policy were rigged to make income flow upward.
