Summary
  • Assesses fourteen major vulnerabilities in the American economic system, and offers solutions for buttressing shortcomings and returning to a more sustainable capitalism
  • Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, capitalism shapes the market economies of all the wealthiest and fastest-growing nations. But trouble is cracking its shiny veneer. In the U.S., Europe, and Japan, economic growth has slowed down. Wealth is concentrated in the hands of a few; natural resources are exploited for short-term profit; and good jobs are hard to find. Kotler explains the major problems undermining capitalism, and delivers a heartening message: We can turn things around
