Ten Controversial Questions ...

1. Why does wealth tend to concentrate in market economies even in times of great prosperity?

2. Why (if markets are basically free and competitive) does vast excess productive capacity persist?

3. Why does the great promise of the industrial revolution (abundance and leisure) remain unfulfilled for most people?

4. Does it matter whether the ownership of capital is highly concentrated or broadly distributed among people?

5. What is behind the adage, "It takes money to make money"?

6. What are the growth and distributive consequences of the fact that most capital is acquired with the earnings of capital?

7. How can more economic opportunity become more broadly distributed?

8. Is there a practical, efficient way to enable all people to acquire capital with the earnings of capital, without taking anything from existing owners?

9. Will an opening of capital markets produce substantial distribution-based economic growth?

10. How can the need for increased economic growth to benefit poor and working people be harmonized with environmental necessities?

Binary Economics offers important new insights, answers, and solutions.
