Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Levine's recent stint serving as a senior economist at the Department of Labor and at the Council of Economic Advisers has provided new windows into his dusty aerie at Berkeley's Haas School of Business. Using this expanded view of America's labor scene, he shows how less rigid workplaces and educational practices, and reworked government regulations and programs can result in higher productivity, a skilled workforce, and fewer social ills. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
