Capitalism Versus Capitalism by Michael Albert

Book Description

The author believes two approaches are currently used in defining the economic policy of a nation: a Rhine model which emphasizes collective achievement and public consensus, and a supply-side model based on individual achievement and short-term profits. Favoring the Rhine approach, he urges the adoption of specific policy changes by the US and other governments, which he believes will lead to a more balanced economy and society.
