A groundbreaking account of how the flaws in capitalism are fatal for America's working class. In the past two decades, deaths of despair from suicide, drug overdose, and alcoholism have risen dramatically. While the rise in premature deaths among American working-class whites has become a national crisis, the authors tie the problem to the weakening position of labor, the growing power of corporations, and to a health-care sector that redistributes working-class wages to the wealthy.
In the author's opinion, politicians and economists for several decades have thought that high levels of inequality were good for the economy; however, an economy that works only for the rich simply doesn't work. Because the middle class is so weak, America's economy now suffers from the kinds of problems that plague less-developed countries. Privileged elites more frequently secure special treatment from a government that wastes money and stifles competition - especially relevant now in the Trump era.
In this authoritative history of the politics of international trade in America from the Revolution to the Trump era, the author asks whether America is better off under a liberal trade regime, or if protectionism has been more beneficial. After World War II, America was the primary architect of the liberal free-trade economic order that ended up dominating the globe for over half a century. Recent years, however, have seen a swelling anti-free trade movement that casts the postwar liberal regime as anti-worker, pro-capital, and - in Donald Trump's view - even anti-American. The author argues that among other benefits the postwar free trade regime has helped American workers.
