9780142181119: Average Is Over: Powering America Beyond the Age of the Great Stagnation

The Great Stagnation was one of the most influential books of 2011, and established Tyler Cowen as the leading thinker on why the middle class has done so poorly over the last few decades. Cowen delivers his magnum opus on where we are headed. It begins with one big, uncomfortable truth: if you re not at the top, you re at the bottom because a steady, secure life somewhere in the middle, is over. Cowen reveals the essential nature of the new economy, how things will get better, and provides practical advice on the best path forward. Average Is Over is a must-read book for entrepreneurs, workers, and anyone who wants to thrive in the emerging economic landscape.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 202 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The groundbreaking follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Great Stagnation The United States continues to mint more millionaires and billionaires than any country ever. Yet, since the great recession, three quarters of the jobs created here pay only marginally more than minimum wage. Why is there growth only at the top and the bottom? Renowned economist and bestselling author Tyler Cowen explains that high earners are taking ever more advantage of machine intelligence and achieving ever-better results. Meanwhile, nearly every business sector relies less and less on manual labor, and that means a steady, secure life somewhere in the middle--average--is over. In Average is Over, Cowen lays out how the new economy works and identifies what workers and entrepreneurs young and old must do to thrive in this radically new economic landscape.
