The At Issue Series offers a wide range of opinions on a single controversial subject. Each volume includes primary and secondary sources from a variety of perspectives - eyewitnesses, scientific journals, government officials, and many others. Extensive bibliographies and annotated lists of relevant organizations provide a gateway to future research.
This title presents differing perspectives on the acquisition, influence, and responsibilities associated with wealth in America. Chapters address the role of investment bankers and mortgage companies in the recent financial crisis; the controversy over bailout recipients and bonuses; the debate over raising taxes for the wealthy, and the social repercussions of our obsession with financial success.
"An excellent source for debates, discussions and reports, this series should be offered to young adults who are able to read, analyze, and think critically about the many points of view presented."
