Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Recommends measures that three Brookings fellows say will improve the US economy (despite anything the Democrats can do), such as requiring employers to improve the training of their workforce, re-orienting secondary education to job training for the non- college-bound, shifting federal support from military and big science to smaller projects and private companies, and reforming international trade policies.
