Review in ASQ of: The Citizen's Share: Putting Ownership Back into Democracy., Administrative Science Quarterly


As concern over income inequality has grown in recent years, political discourse has focused on the nation’s wealthiest one percent. Most debates about this center around the government’s role in redistributing wealth through a more progressive tax regime, In The Citizen's Share, Joseph Blasi, Richard Freeman and Douglas Kruse present an alternative view placing business at the heart of their proposed solution. They suggest that income inequality can be reduced and productivity increased by enabling the average citizen to own a larger stake in America’s economic enterprises. Woven throughout this well-crafted book is a rich historical account of how the concepts of profit sharing and wider capital ownership date back to the earliest economic discussions by the nation’s founding fathers.
