Updates on Lazonick's research.

Lazonick explores the origins of the new era of employment insecurity and income inequality, and considers what governments, businesses, and individuals can do about it. He also asks whether the United States can refashion its high-tech business model to generate stable and equitable economic growth.

Overall, this is a book that anyone interested in the U.S. high-tech labor force, the globalization of the ICT industry, and, particularly, the means by which an advanced economy can achieve sustainable prosperity will find indispensable.
 
“’Sustainable Prosperity’ is a significant achievement, a synthesis of over two decades of research and collaboration in the United States, Asia, and Europe. This timely book should be read by a range of professionals including historians of business and technology, economists, and, one hopes, financial regulators and decision makers in Washington, New York, and Silicon Valley.” –Enterprise and Society
