內容簡介

麥肯錫年度財經書入圍


美國前聯準會主席葛林斯潘和《經濟學人》雜誌執行總編輯、歷史學家亞德里安.伍爾德禮奇首次聯手,寫下美國從殖民地一路變成世界強國的史詩級歷史!

經濟成長和創新從何而來?在社會中如何擴散?為何有些時代特別可以享有這些創新的果實?而有些時代情況反而是相反的?

葛林斯潘在職業生涯中,一直以其對於歷史發展的了解獲得讚賞,這些問題是他在長期研究經濟之下,腦中時常會出現的問題,這本書就是集結了他多年來和這些問題戰鬥下得出的精華。

同時和伍爾德禮奇聯手說出美國的經濟發展史,從奴隸制度所扮演的角色,到美國在世界貿易的態度等重要問題兩位作者都有談及。

美國有現在的經濟發展都是經過許多轉變、挑戰、奮鬥而來,現今社會雖然問題不同於以往,但依舊可以從歷史中借鏡,找到適合現代的解決方法。

From the legendary former Fed Chairman and the acclaimed Economist writer and historian, the full, epic story of America's evolution from a small patchwork of threadbare colonies to the most powerful engine of wealth and innovation the world has ever seen.

Longlisted for the 2018 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award

From even the start of his fabled career, Alan Greenspan was duly famous for his deep understanding of even the most arcane corners of the American economy, and his restless curiosity to know even more. To the extent possible, he has made a science of understanding how the US economy works almost as a living organism--how it grows and changes, surges and stalls. He has made a particular study of the question of productivity growth, at the heart of which is the riddle of innovation. Where does innovation come from, and how does it spread through a society? And why do some eras see the fruits of innovation spread more democratically, and others, including our own, see the opposite?

In Capitalism in America, Greenspan distills a lifetime of grappling with these questions into a thrilling and profound master reckoning with the decisive drivers of the US economy over the course of its history. In partnership with the celebrated Economist journalist and historian Adrian Wooldridge, he unfolds a tale involving vast landscapes, titanic figures, triumphant breakthroughs, enlightenment ideals as well as terrible moral failings. Every crucial debate is here--from the role of slavery in the antebellum Southern economy to the real impact of FDR's New Deal to America's violent mood swings in its openness to global trade and its impact. But to read Capitalism in America is above all to be stirred deeply by the extraordinary productive energies unleashed by millions of ordinary Americans that have driven this country to unprecedented heights of power and prosperity.

At heart, the authors argue, America's genius has been its unique tolerance for the effects of creative destruction, the ceaseless churn of the old giving way to the new, driven by new people and new ideas. Often messy and painful, creative destruction has also lifted almost all Americans to standards of living unimaginable to even the wealthiest citizens of the world a few generations past. A sense of justice and human decency demands that those who bear the brunt of the pain of change be protected, but America has always accepted more pain for more gain, and its vaunted rise cannot otherwise be understood, or its challenges faced, without recognizing this legacy. For now, in our time, productivity growth has stalled again, stirring up the populist furies. There's no better moment to apply the lessons of history to the most pressing question we face, that of whether the United States will preserve its preeminence, or see its leadership pass to other, inevitably less democratic powers.
