The Future of Capitalism: How Today's Economic Forces Shape Tomorrow's World
According to Thurow, we are living in a period of great economic change, when various factors are playing off each other and radically altering the world.But these changes also make for an exciting time, ripe with enormous opportunities for those equipped to take advantage of the storms ahead.In The Future of Capitalism, he examines the major forces causing economic disequilibrium and charts a course for profiting from today's world in flux.A new capitalism must emerge, one in which the ownership of skills ( 'man-made brainpower') instead of physical capital is the key strategic asset.Economic success will depend on our willingness to make social investments in infrastructure, skills, education, and knowledge.Using specific examples from America, Japan, and Europe, The Future of Capitalism challenges and alters the way we view the economic back-bone of today's world, and examines how changes will affect the future.
