Beschreibung

'Not only a wonderful tapestry of the current state of America, it provides a deeply insightful narrative of the origins of our current economic and political malaise' Liaquat Ahamed, author of Lords of Finance America is a nation in long-term economic and geopolitical decline, and in this incisive and highly engaging book, Edward Luce looks at why, and where the country can go from here. Drawing on interviews with business and political leaders, from Bill Gates to ex-Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, as well as ordinary teachers and workers, and covering areas from education and healthcare to politics, business and innovation, Luce delivers a brilliant analysis of the world's sole remaining superpower.'Ranges far and wide . . . Luce has spoken to a terrific array of characters . . . Best of all are his vivid portraits of Americans struggling to get by' Mark Damazer, Financial Times 'A carefully balanced and often startlingly evocative analysis' John Gray, Observer 'Sober, clever, measured . . . What is so impressive about Luce's diagnosis of American decline is the quiet, methodical compilation of damning facts . . . At the heart is the story of a nation that, fattened by affluence, fell for its own propaganda' Dominic Sandbrook, Literary Review

Edward Luce is a graduate of Oxford University in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. He has worked for the Financial Times since 1995 with a one-year break to work in Washington, DC as the speechwriter to Larry Summers, the final US Treasury Secretary of the Clinton administration. He was the FT's Washington bureau chief from 2006 to 2010.
