In Risking A Nation, Jerome McKinney analyzes the problems that must be tackled and how, and looks at the goals that must be reached in order to achieve and maintain competitiveness in the new international economic order. Particular focus is placed on how the U.S. leadership crisis, weakening family values, and rising public anxiety about the future have curtailed the U.S.'s ability to forge creative government business partnerships. The author shows that, in contrast to the United States, Japan possesses a collective commitment and single-minded pursuit of its national interests and the mobilization of its human resources. He argues that such determination will enable Japan to out-complete and out-innovate the U.S. in coming years. McKinney's holistic look at international trade and economics will educate and enlighten the general reader while stirring discussion and debate among public and private policymakers, political scientists, sociologists, economists and individuals concerned about U.S. competitiveness. An excellent text for courses in trade policy, political economy, Japanese studies, basic public administration, political science, and public affairs policy.
