Overview

Powernomics has three main purposes. First, it presents in a helpful way basic works that explain to readers how national and global developments are affecting America's well-being-and their own . Second, its sections are arranged to guide readers through a thought process that reveals the magnitude of the challenges confronting us, and explains why the conventional wisdom has been so slow to recognize them-and, in fact, continues to deny that they exist. Third, the volume spotlights the questions that need to be asked in order to meet these challenges.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
With the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe and the American economy sliding into a recession, these two timely volumes call for a new economic strategy--located between a free market and a command economy--for the 1990s. Specifically, the United States should move beyond romantic laissez-faire to an economics that promotes our national securi ty. Kuttner, a noted analyst and commentator, offers a historical perspective, analyzing the politics of national and worldwide economic planning and focusing on what the country's economic priorities should be in a changing world. Powernomics is a collection of essays that focuses more on new public policies. Contributors include Kuttner himself, MIT economist Lester Thurow, economist Pat Choate, and author Clyde Prestowitz. While the Kuttner book is preferred for the general reader, both are complementary and would be important additions, especially to academic collections.-- Richard C. Schiming, Mankato State Univ., Minn.
