Summary A revised edition of a work originally published in French (Julliard, 1994), this serves as a tour of the dominant ideas in political economy, summarizing historical and theoretical perspectives on the causes of economic growth in the US, Western Europe, Japan, and elsewhere. Among other issues, the author discusses the effects of the showdown of productivity in Europe and explains the origins of the apparent tradeoff between unemployment in Europe and wage inequalities in the US. He advocates government discretion by showing the disastrous consequences of a hands-off approach to debt, inflation, and social security.
