The author believes two approaches are currently used in defining the economic policy of a nation: a Rhine model which emphasizes collective achievement and public consensus, and a supply-side model based on individual achievement and short-term profits. Favoring the Rhine approach, he urges the adoption of specific policy changes by the US and other governments, which he believes will lead to a more balanced economy and society.

From Library Journal:

In the new world order, where capitalism reigns supreme, who will reign over capitalism: the United States? Germany? Japan? French businessman Albert identifies two variants of capitalism now at odds with each other. The Anglo-American model is characterized by individual gain and laissez-faire government. The Rhine model (followed by Germany and, in some respects, Japan) is a kinder, gentler capitalism in which long-term success of the entire society is paramount. Originally published in France in 1991, this book cannot take into account recent shake-ups in each system, but Albert's case is still significant. This topic will be debated in academia and industry into the next century. Recommended for business collections.
