In this important book, three prominent economists propose that there are different varieties of capitalism in the world today--some good for economic growth, others decidedly bad. Writing in an accessible style, William J. Baumol, Robert E. Litan, and Carl J. Schramm documentfour different varieties of capitalism and identify the conditions that characterize Good Capitalism—the right blend of entrepreneurial and established firms, which can vary among countries—as well as the features of Bad Capitalism. They examine how countries catching up to the United States can move faster toward the economic frontier, while laying out the need for the United States itself to stick to and reinforce the recipe for growth that has enabled it to be the leading economic force in the world. This pathbreaking book is a must read for anyone who cares about global growth and how to ensure America’s economic future.

Review:

"Good Capitalism, Bad Capitalism helpfully moves the debate on from competing national models to the underlying structures that shape the relative effectiveness of different sorts of capitalism."―The Economist (The Economist 2007-07-07)

"Well worth a read by both academics and policy-makers. It is an interesting and promising departure from the standard debates."―Mark Zachary Taylor, Review of Policy Research (Mark Zachary Taylor Review of Policy Research)

"The issues here are complex, and the book is chock-full of wise suggestions on how to reform the patent system, bankruptcy laws, and antitrust policies to protect 'good capitalism.'" ―Joel Mokyr, Technology and Culture (Joel Mokyr Technology and Culture 2009-04-01)
