Summary
This book asks what explains the inability of American political leaders to devise an industrial policy capable of focusing the energies of American business on the task of meeting the Japanese challenge. To get at the political roots of American economic decline, the author examines political philosophy, comparative politics, and international political economy. He concludes that failures of management, finance, and politics are interlocking and reinforcing; and more critically, that the political inheritance of America, reflected in the very design of the Constitution and the long dominance of Jeffersonian individualism over Hamiltonian statism prevents a more effective response to the Japanese economic challenge
