After the New Economy
Doug Henwood
Price: $ 24.95

"If Karl Marx wrote as well as Doug Henwood, who knows what course history might have taken." ¿James Grant

During the 1990s boom, we heard constantly about the New Economy. A technological and organizational revolution that precipitated an unprecedented era of rapid productivity growth and rendered recessions as obsolete as rotary-dial phones. Mass participation in the stock market transformed workers into owners; the freewheeling US economy became the envy of the world; and ¿globalization,¿ whatever that is exactly, had rendered national borders obsolete.

Some of the manic exuberance surrounding this story has disappeared with the bursting of the Nasdaq bubble and the scandals that emerged as the froth cleared. But what really happened? Why did the stock market go on an eighteen-year tear? Was there really a technological revolution? Is the world as borderless as everyone says? Did class distinctions really erode? Was corporate malfeasance really a matter of a few bad apples¿or was the rot far more pervasive than that? And what does the future hold in store?

Economic journalist Doug Henwood answers all of these questions in After the New Economy.

Doug Henwood edits the Left Business Observer, hosts a weekly radio show on WBAI (New York), and is the author of The State of the USA Atlas and Wall Street.
