Given the powerfully negative and ongoing impact of the Great Recession on western economies, the question of whether historically wealthy nations–the US, Western European countries, Japan–can stay wealthy has become an overriding concern for virtually every interested observer.
Can their middle classes remain comfortable as more and more good and technical jobs disappear to other parts of the world? Can they support themselves as they devote more and more economic resources to an aging population base? In The Third Globalization, eminent political economists Dan Breznitz and John Zysman gather some of the discipline’s leading scholars to assess the prospects for growth and prosperity among advanced industrial nations.
Join Professor Dan Breznitz in conversation with Professor Joseph Wong as they discuss the book’s powerful analysis of a crushing global problem.
