From Industry to Arms: The Political Economy of High Technology

Synopsis

The linkages between the government and the industrial economy that shape the direction of America's technological development are the focus of this work. DiFilippo analyzes this political economy both empirically and comparatively, and argues that an improvement in U.S. competitiveness, manufacturing, productivity, and the standard of living require a shift of technological resources from the military to the civilian sector. He examines such topics as conventional explanations of competitive decline and the industrial policies of Japan, West Germany, and France, and provides a practical alternative to confront many of the current economic problems.
