Unjust Rewards: Ending the Greed That is Bankrupting Britain

by Polly Toynbee and David Walker
£8.99   paperback  Granta Books (2009)

Unjust Rewards: Ending the Greed That is Bankrupting Britain by Polly Toynbee and David Walker In the boom years, the rich got richer while the poor got poorer. Bankers pocketed millions while the low paid fell ever further behind. Brazen greed had led us into a global economic crisis and the widening gap between rich and poor has damaged the very fabric of our society.
 
In this urgent polemic, Guardian journalists Polly Toynbee and David Walker meet people from across the earning spectrum and discover just how greedy, dysfunctional and unfair Britain has become. They shred the myth that top executives require astronomical salaries, and ask if the recent media focus on pay has changed attitudes enough. They put the case for higher taxation of the very rich and challenge all political parties to re-think taxes and the programmes they finance. They argue that in the current desperate climate, changes in government policy are needed more than ever to make Britain a fairer, less angry place.
