The Coming American Renaissance: How to Benefit from America's Economic Resurgence

Front Cover
Simon & Schuster, 1996 - Business & Economics - 319 pages
In a brilliant challenge to those politicians and pundits predicting America's decline, Moynihan proves that the nation's current sense of pessimism is a holdover from problems of the past, not a harbinger of times to come. Filled with practical information and advice for a wide range of readers, from corporate chiefs and managers to job hunters and home buyers, The Coming American Renaissance will provide invaluable insights and knowledge to all those planning their economic futures. The seeds of America's renaissance have already been sown, Moynihan argues, and their germination is visible today in the success of farsighted entrepreneurs and firms. He explores America's rare advantages: its newly revived manufacturing sector, its leadership in cyberspace, and its ability to create technology. Moynihan draws his insights from careful analysis of demographic, economic, and business trends. This method lets him describe the particulars of America's changing workstyles and lifestyles in surprising detail and make knowledgeable - and sometimes startling - predictions about the future. America is going through a period of great upheaval as we retool our economy for the twenty-first century. But one of America's brightest young thinkers, Michael Moynihan, is optimistic. One of a new generation of American visionaries who have not lost their belief in this country's promise as a land of opportunity, he demystifies the forces shaping our economic future. His meticulously researched and incisively written book not only is a map of that unexplored territory, but will also be an invaluable guide.
