Mohamed El-Erian on Capitalism: To fail on one count is a problem

The crisis in capitalism is caused by two distinct failures: the inability of the system to deliver sustained prosperity through economic growth and jobs; and the perception that it is grossly unfair and socially unjust.
To fail on one count is a problem.

Yet many would have probably glossed over that, especially those who  –  erroneously in my view  –  believe that there are rigid trade-offs between efficiency and equity.

However, to fail on both counts, and to do so in such a spectacular manner, is indeed a “crisis.”

It raises legitimate questions about the model itself.
