The Great Escape The Great Escape

This book is about the endless dance between progress and inequality, about how progress creates inequality, and how inequality can sometimes be helpful—showing  others the way, or providing incentives for catching up—and sometimes unhelpful— when those who have escaped protect their positions by destroying the escape routes behind them. This is a story that has been told many times, but I want to tell it in a new way.
