9780140128116: The Roaring 80s
From Library Journal:

Celebrities such as the pseudonymous Smith apparently can get away with compiling speeches, articles, and interviews with the expectation that such books will sell. This collection of mostly undated items (one stems from 1970) has little coherence: There is a general dissatisfaction with the U.S. economy, its lack of central planning, its emphasis on mergers and acquisitions, and its concentration on making money rather than things. Many articles profess admiration for Japan's educational system, productivity, diligence, and harmony. The American "marketplace works, but only in a very lumpy way." There are nuggets, such as the account of the 1987 market crash, but this book is a discretionary purchase. Literary Guild alternate.. Alex Wenner, Indiana Univ. Lib., Bloomington
