Synopsis

"A great place to start if you want to understand the issues surrounding what is America's most serious problem" -- Lester Thurow

"At last, a book about America's economic dilemma that is written with panache -- and courage. Bill Wolman and Anne Colamosca dare to say what most economist hardly dare to think. There is nothing natural about the plight of today's workers. They are the victims of an historic shift in economic power". -- Jeff Madrick, author of The End of Affluence

In this Provocative Book, Business Week chief economist Bill Wolman and Anne Colamosca say what our business and government leaders are unwilling to admit, but what most workers know in their gut: in the global economy, big money calls the shots and workers -- white-collar professionals as well as blue-collar -- are increasingly expendable. Drawing on history and their deep knowledge of how the world economy works, the authors demonstrate why downsizing will continue whether or not it makes America more competitive. Essential reading for all those concerned with the future of their own job, and the future of the American economy.
