Business Week said: "A ruthlessly honest, tough-minded book on what it will take to restore the U. S. Economy to health. " As relevant today as it was twenty years ago, The Zero-Sum Society shows us how to think about the best way to balance government stewardship of the economy with the free market aspirations of upwardly mobile Americans. Interpreting macroeconomics as a zero-sum game, Thurow proposes that the American economy will not solve its trenchant problems - inflation, slow economic growth, the environment - until the political economy can support, in theory and practice, the idea that certain members of society will have to bear the brunt of taxation and other government-sponsored actions. This book is a piercing analysis of the social implications of economic policy and a classic work of economic problem solving. 230 pages including notes and an index. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
