Stiglitz on inequality and growth

Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz here talks briefly about the problem of inequality, particularly in the US, and how reducing it could improve overall growth alongside social justice. Although this is a very short piece, the key idea for me is that rising inequality may be as much the result of policy as of inexorable economic forces.
