"Timely and important . . . It should be our North Star for the recovery and beyond." --Hillary Clinton "Sperling makes a forceful case that only by speaking to matters of the spirit can liberals root their belief in economic justice in people's deepest aspirations--in their sense of purpose and self-worth." --The New York Times When Gene Sperling was in charge of coordinating economic policy in the Obama White House, he found himself surprised when serious people in Washington told him that the Obama focus on health care was a distraction because it was "not focused on the economy." How, he asked, was the fear felt by millions of Americans of being one serious illness away from financial ruin not considered an economic issue? Too often, Sperling found that we measured economic success by metrics like GDP instead of whether the economy was succeeding in lifting up the sense of meaning, purpose, fulfillment, and security of people. In Economic Dignity, Sperling frames the way forward in a time of wrenching change and offers a vision of an economy whose guiding light is the promotion of dignity for all Americans.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Gene SperlingPublisher: Penguin BooksPublished: 10/12/2021ISBN: 9781984879899Pages: 384Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 8.90h x 5.90w x 1.00d
