about this book

There is no longer such a thing as an American economy, says Robert Reich at the beginning of this brilliant book. What does it mean to be a nation when money, goods, and services know no borders? What skills will be the most valuable in the coming century? And how can our country best ensure that all its citizens have a share of the new global economy? Reich defines these challenges in this trail-blazing book.

"An elegant and penetrating analysis of the forces that are leading to the globalization of the international system and to the growing anachronism of thinking solely in 'national' terms. More importantly, [Reich] compels us to think about the disturbing potential consequences of these trends, as well as ways to be better prepared to meet them."—Paul Kennedy, author of The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers

"A startling and brilliant study."—Irving Howe
