Never Enough

Capitalism and the Progressive Spirit

First Edition

Neil Gilbert

  • Removes the veil of scientific authority that has obscured the prevailing assumptions about the severity and implications of poverty, inequality, and social mobility in the U.S. along with the presumed benefits of universal social policies.
  • Proposes a neo-progressive agenda that would focus on the true challenges we face in the 21st century.
  • Uses hard data, stripped of subjective filters, to come to controversial and counterintuitive conclusions about social mobility, income inequality, social welfare spending, and other core elements of the progressive agenda.
  • Likely to cause a stir within the academy, generating some controversy and ruffling some feathers.
