About this product
- DescriptionIn this book, Robert Boyer follows the origins, course and collapse of the 'new ecomy' and proposes a new interpretation of US dynamism during the 1990s. He argues that the diffusion of information and communication techlogies is only part of a story that also requires understanding of the transformation of the financial system, the reorganization of the management of firms and the emergence of a new policy mix. The book includes a long-term retrospective analysis of techlogical invation, and an international comparison of OECD countries delivers an unconventional and critical assessment of the hope and the hype of the 'new ecomy'. The book proposes that the US way is t necessarily the only efficient one, as demonstrated by the experience of the Nordic countries, which manage to combine ecomic efficiency with social justice. The author argues that European ecomies would do well to take te and to explore a promising growth regime for the twenty-first century, one built upon health, education, training and leisure, this comprising the 'anthropogenetic model'. The Future of Ecomic Growth is a challenging and thought-provoking book, and as such will be of interest to many academics, researchers and students within the field of ecomics. It will be particularly relevant to those with an interest in macroecomics, industrial organisation and the theory of the firm, and growth theory.
