As the gap between wealthy and poor continues to widen, Bruce Ackerman and Anne Alstott present a revolutionary idea for bridging the divide. Although giving every qualified adult an $80,000 grant may appear extreme and fiscally foolhardy, the authors present lucid and viable reasons why this bold and innovative plan would not only work, but be a gateway to a more liberal, productive and representative society. Innovative in its bold simplicity, The Stakeholder Society is a rare example of a book that could change society for the better.
