This book challenges the prevailing view that regional economic decline is caused by unionization and can be avoided through tax cuts. Respected economist Douglas Booth suggests the establishment of cooperative financial institutions in order to shift corporate responsibility from stockholders to employees. Policymakers, those interested in employee ownership, unionists, and those interested in the nation's economic problems in general will find the book provocative and timely.
