  1. I recommend Mr. Rajan’s blog , I find very interesting his view on creating wealth and sharing it.

  2. Thanks for the links to Rajan’s blog and the NY times Q&A. A very interesting read, esp his thoughts on how he links the governments lack of concern about the rising inequality of income to it allowing easy credit for the lower income earners because the Govt won’t address the deeper issues causing them concern.

    Thanks for Mr Rajan’s blog. Indeed, knowledge is power, we should learnhow to create wealth,

  4. Response… Until now I thought Kevin Phillips was the definitive realist as evidenced in his “Bad Money”. I am just now reading Fault Lines and find it so deeply discerning it is surely one of the most thought provoking writings of our era. Why is Mr. Rajan not more widely known?
