內容簡介



為何美國的經濟黃金時代一去不復返?
美國西北大學經濟學教授Robert J. Gordon一鳴驚人的精闢解析
《紐約時報》、《華爾街日報》、《科克斯書評》、《經濟學人雜誌》、《華盛頓郵報》、《英國衛報》、《哈芬登郵報》、《金融時報》一致好評推薦


在美國內戰結束後的一個世紀,經濟發展突飛猛進,經濟革命改善了美國人的生活標準,包括照明電器、室內管道、家用電器、汽車、航空旅行、冷氣機及改變家家戶戶及所有企業的電視機發行。伴隨著醫學進步,1870年至1970年的平均壽命也從45歲增長到72歲。美國西北大學經濟學教授Robert J. Gordon以生動的敘述,結合精彩的歷史故事及經濟分析,陳述這段美國最偉大的年代,但這段經濟起飛的黃金時代是否也即將走入歷史?作者Gordon認為與過去這段特殊世紀相比,美國的生產率已經減緩至爬行的速度,未來將面臨加劇的社會不平等現象、教育停滯不前、人口老齡化及不斷增長的國家負債等多種不利因素,將深深影響美國經濟的進步。他認為美國必須找出新的克服方案去挑戰未來,而不是繼續倚靠過去的成就,這不只是美國即將面臨的經濟問題,也是全世界的問題。
 
In the century after the Civil War, an economic revolution improved the American standard of living in ways previously unimaginable. Electric lighting, indoor plumbing, home appliances, motor vehicles, air travel, air conditioning, and television transformed households and workplaces. With medical advances, life expectancy between 1870 and 1970 grew from forty-five to seventy-two years. Weaving together a vivid narrative, historical anecdotes, and economic analysis, The Rise and Fall of American Growth provides an in-depth account of this momentous era. But has that era of unprecedented growth come to an end?

Gordon challenges the view that economic growth can or will continue unabated, and he demonstrates that the life-altering scale of innovations between 1870 and 1970 can't be repeated. He contends that the nation's productivity growth, which has already slowed to a crawl, will be further held back by the vexing headwinds of rising inequality, stagnating education, an aging population, and the rising debt of college students and the federal government. Gordon warns that the younger generation may be the first in American history that fails to exceed their parents' standard of living, and that rather than depend on the great advances of the past, we must find new solutions to overcome the challenges facing us.


A critical voice in the debates over economic stagnation, The Rise and Fall of American Growth is at once a tribute to a century of radical change and a harbinger of tougher times to come.
