Book Description: TIMES BOOKS, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 241 x 165 mm. Brand New Book. Anbsp;leading political and business thinker identifies the greatest threat to our economic future: the things we think we know#8212;but don#8217;t America is at a crossroads. In the face of global competition and rapid technological change, our economy is about to face its most severe test in nearly a century#8212;one that will make the recent turmoil in the financial system look like a modest setback by comparison. Yet our leaders have failed to prepare us for what lies ahead because they are in the grip of a set of dead ideas about how a modern economy should work. They wrongly believe thatOur kids will earn more than we do Free trade is always good, no matter who gets hurt Employers should be responsible for health coverage Taxes hurt the economy Schools are a local matter Money follows meritThese ways of thinking#8212;dubious at best and often dead wrong#8212;are on a collision course with economic developments that are irre-versible.In The Tyranny of Dead Ideas, Matt Miller offers a unique blend of insights from history, psychology, and economics to illuminate where today#8217;s destructive conventional wisdom came from and how it holds our country back. He also introduces us to a new way of thinking#8212;what he calls tomorrow#8217;s destined ideas #8212;that can reinvigorate our economy, our politics, and our day-to-day lives. These destined ideas may seem counterintuitive now, but they will coalesce in the coming years in ways that will transform America.A strikingly original assessment of our current dilemma and an indispensable guide to our future, Miller#8217;s provocative and path-breaking book reveals why it is urgent that we break the tyranny of dead ideas, for it is only by doing so that we can move beyond the limits of today#8217;s obsolete debates and reinvent American capitalism and democracy for the twenty-first century.
