9780099574385: Back to Work: Why We Need Smart Government for a Strong Economy

In Back to Work, Bill Clinton offers a plan to get America out of its economic crisis and "back into the future business."

Clinton details how to lay a foundation for long-term prosperity, offering specific recommendations on how to boost employment rates, increase bank lending and corporate investment, and double exports.

He emphasises that antigovernment sentiments in the public rarely contribute to a prosperous growth. Conflict between the government and the private sector has given the U.S. a weak economy, growing income inequality, and a decline in its competitive position. Cooperation, he stresses, is more conducive to success than conflict.

To Clinton, America "at its core is an idea - the idea that no matter who you are or where you're from, if you work hard and play by the rules, you'll have the freedom and opportunity to pursue your own dreams." Back to Work is an effort to rejuvenate the idea that is America.

Review:

"There's an upbeat, front-foot tone to Back to Work that is welcome at a time of despair. Love him or hate him, he hasn't lost his touch." ( Telegraph)

"Shrewd and convincing. To say that Bill Clinton possesses superb political instincts is like saying that Paul McCartney has a good ear; he is probably the best natural politician of his generation. His skill at framing an argument is without peer and that he does so without demagoguery is to his lasting credit . . . informed, high-minded, intelligent and persuasive" ( Observer)

"Through the sheer number and range of his ideas, Mr Clinton manages to convey a badly needs sense of hope." ( Economist)

"This book is a well-timed and serious contribution to the debate that will go a long way towards deciding next year's election - the debate on what America's government is for." ( The Times)

Book Description:

Essential reading on the global economy from former US President, Bill Clinton
