That Used to Be Us: How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back

Description

America has a huge problem. It faces four major challenges, on which its future depends, and it is failing to meet them.

Those challenges—globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption—are spelled out in this analysis.

What can America do to rise to this moment? Can the creation of a new, third-party movement offer a way out?

Speakers: Thomas L. Friedman, Michael Mandelbaum
