Little in politics is as hotly debated as how we can energize America’s economy, create jobs, and provide a better life for our citizens. In Concrete Economics, economist, Brad DeLong along with his coauthor Stephen Cohen, argue that the answer to this struggle won’t be found on the Left or the Right, but in the Past. They looks back through history from Hamilton to Eisenhower, to the decades they feel the process fell apart—the 1970s and 1980s. They focus on the forgotten role played by government in initiating and enabling a redesign of the U.S. economy, and provide a blueprint for how the government, established companies, and new ventures can partner to yet again successfully reshape the economy in healthy and constructive ways.
