Just Around The Corner The Paradox Of The Jobless Recovery

Synopsis

Just Around The Corner The Paradox Of The Jobless Recovery by Stanley Aronowitz

Americans have always believed that economic growth leads to job growth. In this groundbreaking analysis, Stanley Aronowitz argues that this is no longer true. Just Around the Corner examines the state of the American economy as planned by Democrats and Republicans over the last thirty years. Aronowitz finds that economic growth has become \u0022delinked\u0022 from job creation, and that unemployment and underemployment are a permanent condition of our economy. He traces the historical roots of this state of affairs and sees under the surface of booms and busts a continuum of economic austerity that creates financial windfalls for the rich at the expense of most Americans. Aronowitz also explores the cultural and political processes by which we have come to describe and accept economics in the United States. He concludes by presenting a concrete plan of action that would guarantee employment and living wages for all Americans. With both measured analysis and persuasive reasoning, Just Around the Corner provides an indispensable guide to our current economic predicament and a bold challenge to economists and policymakers.

Reviews

Just Around the Corner is a highly readable and thought-provoking examination of the structural joblessness that is affecting wider segments of the population. This timely book should be read and debated by all those concerned about the future of American workers in the global economy. -William Julius Wilson, Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor, Harvard University Stanley Aronowitz is the most important scholar on the past and present U.S. working class. From his classic False Promises to this courageous and timely book, he has put forward the most profound analysis and challenging vision of deep democracy here and abroad. -Cornel West, Princeton University
