Post-Industrial Capitalism
Exploring Economic Inequality in America



August 1995 | 199 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
An alternative framework for examining and explaining the widening economic and social stratification within United States society is provided in this book. Until now, two points of view - Marxist and industrialist - have dominated the discourse. Joel I Nelson offers a comprehensive explanation of inequality and locates its source in the transformation of capitalism, free market ideology and the evolution of US business.
