Synopsis

"Forget everything you think you know about the direction of the American economy, about our grow­ing need for foreign oil, about the rise of the service economy and the decline of American manufacturing. The story of the next thirty years will not be a repeat of the last thirty."

Now, in her first book, she expands upon her biggest call since the financial crisis.
