Are the rich compatible with democracy? Should we accept such a high degree of inequality in our society? Does the profit system glorify greed? In /Are the Rich Necessary?/ Hunter Lewis presents the most fundamental and provocative economic arguments that underlie society. Lewis connects economics directly with profound contemporary social issues. How are our personal values reflected in these issues and how do we choose between contending economic approaches? Most importantly, can philanthropy play a strategic role in helping people to lift themselves from poverty? Lewis offers a dramatic new proposal to significantly increase contributions to charitable organizations to help address key social issues. A challenging and sure to be influential book.

From the Back Cover:

This updated and expanded edition of Are the Rich Necessary? is an ideal introduction to economics at a time when economics is on everyone's mind. Lewis is always objective, fair, and fun to read. Rich is also an ideal adjunct to an economics textbook. The New York Times called this book both highly provocative and highly pleasurable.
