Freedom is a core value of American life. But today, the language of freedom has been co-opted and used to justify exploitation. Pharmaceutical companies are free to overcharge for medication, big tech is free from oversight, politicians are free to incite rebellion, corporations are free to pollute, and more. How did we get here? Whose freedom are we-should we-be thinking about?'

In The Road to Freedom: Economics and the Good Society, Joseph E. Stiglitz reveals why America's core political and economic systems don't offer true freedom. Taking on giants of neoliberalism and free market capitalism, such as Hayek and Friedman, Stiglitz turns these accepted ideas about our systems on their head. The Road to Freedom offers a fundamental reevaluation of democracy, economics, and what constitutes a good society, showing what kind of economic and political system is most likely to deliver a good society, including one that enhances meaningful freedoms for most individuals. Stiglitz's latest is vital reading for anyone envisioning a future led by tolerance, education, and, above all, freedom.
