"The prophecies of doom have been relentless... It takes great courage to have another look at the data and conclude, as the authors of Productivity and American Leadership do, that the American productive engine has not shut down... And it takes a sweeping command of economics, statistics and history, along with great narrative eloquence and subtlety, to make [this point] credibly and without condescension... The authors have painted a brilliant and nuanced composition of where we are and where we can be." Michael J. Feuer , New York Times Book Review
