Steven Pearlstein, Columnist, The Washington Post; Author, Can American Capitalism Survive? Why Greed is Not Good, Opportunity Is Not Equal, and Fairness Won't Make Us Poor Now more than ever, it seems that the turmoil of American political and economic life leaves many Americans questioning the intentions of our most powerful leaders. Millions have been lifted out of poverty, and productivity has never been greater, but in the United States most of the economic growth has fallen into the hands of the richest 10 percent. As seen with his latest book, Can American Capitalism Survive?, Steven Pearlstein's critique of capitalism falls in line with this trend. A Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, Pearlstein describes his problems with current economic methodology and offers his solutions to save capitalism. His conviction challenges the status quo of today's leading business ideas. Pearlstein argues that qualities such as trust, fairness and integrity are necessary in correcting these problems with American capitalism.   Join us for an intriguing discussion on current American economics and learn more about Pearlstein's solution for better capitalism.
