“Decline of the USA”

from Edward Fullbrook

Today I am publishing this short ebook:

The small print on the cover below “USA” reads:

relative to Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and United Kingdom

You can download the book and read more about it, including what Dean Baker, Kevin Gallagher,  Michael Hudson, David Ruccio, Irene van Staveren and others have to say about it, by going here.

    Are there plans to publish the e-book in any real e-book formats (mobi or epub)? Would be much more convenient to read for all the people with e-readers.

    Although this post is a month old and the author is unlikely to respond (I just became aware of this book via another blog – realitybase.org), I have a question.

    The title suggests a decline in the US. This quote is from the Intro:

    “Forty years of neoliberalism and plutonomy have taken their toll on the United States of America.”

    However, content of the book is entirely current or recent data. What is the evidence there has been an actual decline in the US relative to the other nations? I don’t see anything that indicates higher rankings in the past. I understand that the conventional wisdom states that this was the case, but then again maybe we’ve had a distorted view for forty years.

    Having just started a 6 month vacation in the USA, I came across your e-book this evening. I’ve downloaded it and will read with interest over the next few days.
