about

In this groundbreaking new study, Whicker and Moore address an issue of critical importance to the future economic and political stability of the United States: how can this nation become more competitive in international markets. Drawing upon economic theory, political philosophy, and specific policy expertise, the authors organize their work around two principle themes: that just as the role of government in a changing world is evolutionary, policies must evolve to reflect shifting economic realities, and that previously hostile attitudes among U.S. management, labor, and government must be replaced by cooperation in order to ensure effective, long-term competitiveness abroad.

?How to make the United States more competitive as a nation is the central theme of this book. The work is organized around two principal themes: that policies must evolve to reflect shifting economic realities, and that hostile attitudes among U.S. management, labor, and government must be replaced by cooperation to ensure' competitiveness abroad. The authors analyze current economic thought about competitiveness, explore the roles that domestic policy (crime, education, health) plays in our lack of competitiveness, and show how improvements in these areas would have a positive impact.?-Business Information Alert
