Author/narrator Anand Giridharadas has a serious message about economic inequality, but his lively pacing and gently mocking tone provide the spoonful of sugar that makes WINNERS TAKE ALL an engrossing and enjoyable audio experience. He argues that superrich philanthropists are something of a contradiction. They want to make the world a better place but without changing the rigged economic system that advantaged them while exacerbating inequality for everyone else. Giridharadas's voice exudes enthusiasm, sincerity, and a lot of amused disbelief. He states that the market would be fairer and more efficient if companies paid their employees a fair wage instead of government anti-poverty programs making up the difference while shareholders reap the benefits. Thought-provoking and damning but wryly funny, too. A.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
