Read in June, 2011

This was a short summary of some of the author's economic research combining income inequality, relational goods, and "winner take all" markets. It is very accessible, compared with the Econ journal articles and suggestive of some important policy areas where markets have not worked efficiently in recent years. It is very useful for policy discussions, such as on debt reduction policies.
