520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc 2006 Templeton Enterprise Award Winner. �Americans work three jobs just to make ends meet, and unemployment is low only because so many people are in jail.� That�s what most European (and many American) pundits believe. While the U.S. economy may create more growth, Europeans think they are better off when it comes to job security, income equality, and other factors. But does European-style �comfy capitalism� really deliver better results than American �cowboy capitalism�? Olaf Gersemann, a German reporter who came to America, checked the facts and discovered that the common perception in Europe and elsewhere of America�s economic model is either wrong or misleading. The greater market freedoms in the United States create a more flexible, adaptable, and prosperous system than the declining welfare states of Europe. Contrary to what one might expect, continental Europe�s welfare states provide no meaningful advantage compared with America. In clear and accessible terms, Gersemann separates the economic myths from the reality. Cowboy Capitalism is a provocative and devastating rebuttal to the stereotypes promoted by the likes of Paul Krugman and Michael Moore -publisher�s description.
520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc �This is a comprehensive, indeed truly encyclopedic, comparison of economic conditions and policies in the United States with those in Germany, France, and Italy. Gersemann, a German journalist based in the United States, provides detailed evidence to support his devastating rejection of common European fallacies about the American economy. A real treasure trove of thoughtful analysis.� --Milton Friedman, Nobel Laureate in Economics. Also includes information on African Americans, bankruptcies, demographic aging and entitlements, economic justice and security, boom of 1990s, educational attainment, educational inequality, employment protection legislation, France, Germany, household income, income distribution, income inequality, international comparisons, Italy, jobs, labor productivity, living standards, new economy, poverty, service economy, tax burden, taxes, technological progress/revolution, unemployment, wages and salaries, women, etc.
