Overview

The American model of capitalism is followed by businesses large and small across the world. In this groundbreaking book, Donald Kalff argues that the time is ripe for re-evaluation. An Unamerican Business catalogs all the hindrances that the traditional US model creates for businesses, from limitation of growth potential to the rise of unintended consequences, and re-assesses the performance of the US economy, reaching the grim conclusion that past economic growth has been badly overestimated.
 
Challenging notions of how success can be measured, An UnAmerican Business goes on to offer a credible alternative in the European enterprise model, one which is founded on quite different values of culture, ethics and economic considerations. An UnAmerican Business is a fresh and objective look at the past, present and future performance of companies that have embraced the American way of doing business.
