Capitalism in America Summary Ä 102 From the legendary former Fed Chairman and the acclaimed Economist writer and historian the full epic story of America's evolution from a small patchwork of threadbare colonies to the most powerful engine of wealth and innovation the world has ever seenShortlisted for the 2018 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year AwardFrom even the start of his fabled career Alan Greenspan was duly famous for his deep understanding of even the most arcane corners of the American economy and his restless curiosity to know even To the extent possible he has made a science of understanding how the US economy works almost as a living organism how it grows and changes surges and stalls He has made a particular study of the uestion of productivity growth at the heart of which is the riddle of innovation Where does innovation come from and how does it spread through a society And why do some eras see the fruits of innovation spread democra. This one is a bit hard to review It has its good points and is entertaining is spots It is a too basic and clearly intended for a general reading audience It is well written and draws on the best of current historical scholarship The book also has a clear perspective which is a mixed blessingThis is a one volume history of American capitalism that stretches temporally from colonial times to the beginning year of the Trump administration The lead author is a former head of the Federal Reserve and a legendary guruoracle of finance during the 1990s and early 2000s He is not free from concerns that he may have contributed to some of the events in the book through his policies His coauthor is a well known and very skilled business writer for the Economist magazine I suspect that this book is seen as a potential text for some introductory classes as various secondary and post secondary levels as well as perhaps in some online MOOC courses On this account the book is effective and if there had to be one text with this set of coverage parameters one could choose worse ones than this Readers can follow up this book with others and make their own judgments regarding gaps and balanceAs a basic book Greenspan s perspective about a grand history of American capitalism with a focus on entrepreneurship and creative destruction is valuable It is really important for a book to have a strong story so that readers see how the range of events that go into such a history fit together at least or less The book views the history of American capitalism as the progressive triumph of entrepreneurship that has led to American prosperity and which has brought benefits to the masses that were hardly dreamed of at the time of the revolution This occurs through processes of innovation and creative destruction that lead old ways of doing things to the dustbin of history while ushering in new and productive approaches Good bye buggies horses and buggy whips hello automobiles but The problem with grand historical narratives especially of economic activity is that they are inherently oversimplified and at their worst simplistic Yes yes the country has prospered but what about those pesky costs social and economic that arose from creative destruction and were imposed upon others who did not make life choices that were blessed by the economic gods and perhaps did not see the history as a beneficial one especially for them Indians Women Slaves Freed slaves Chinese laborers Don t trouble me with details after all one needs to break some eggs to get This does not even begin to cover the costs of workers and families dislocated by economic changes with reduced possibilities for second chances At a metaphysical level how does one begin to think about the roads not taken Ok so the US went for mass production and consumerism was the alternative to that really Stalinist repression or third world poverty The simulation fallacy looms large here and we will never know what might have happenedA broad history almost has to adopt a position that of course there were the disadvantaged and dislocated and that slavery and continental expansion were hard on indigenous people but it all turned out for the better didn t it Up to a point I understand this but seriously It is really not OK as a method to average out the costs of massive social change across the various parties Personal utilities are not standardized or interchangeable Do were really want to dismiss the subjugation of millions of slaves along with the traumas placed on freed slaves and their dependents by Jim Crow That is a bit hard to fit into the story without wincing Once you get going on this it should be possible to rationalize anything in the name of progress anythingMore generally a book like this must of necessity be an amalgamation of numerous subsections each of which has its own body of scholarship behind it For US economic history there have been huge advances in research on virtually every topic included in this volume To the authors credit they cite the right researchers and appear to have done their homework I know where to turn for detail The trouble of course is that for any of these topics the implication of the research is far from clear even for experts For a new reader to this area I have to think that follow up reading will almost invariably lead to the conclusion that the history is far complicated and hard to clearly interpret than is made the case in this volume There is always nuance and it is not always clear how hard the authors are pushing their particular perspectives as opposed to broader levels of consensus Particularly egregious was the critical analysis of the New Deal and the mini recession of 1937 as well as the concluding analysis of the current causes of reduced US economic dynamism Virtually all along the way the perspectives of the authors are uite clearThis is OK so I do not agree with the march of entrepreneurship and creative destruction story in its full range and detail There are other stories to tell as well and the effort to present a grand narrative is problematic But if it gets people to read and think about these topics and perhaps even read in detail and take issue with the authors then that for me is a good resultI did not get much new material out of the book but I was able to stick with it and did not give it upIt was OK and worth the effort The Wake colonies to the most powerful engine of wealth and innovation the world has ever seenShortlisted for the 2018 Financial Times and McKinsey
