Prof. Cowen's book was, on the whole, a good and worthy read. I agree with the fundamental premise of the book, namely that the United States must develop different economic sectors and make substantial social and political changes if we wish to maintain the 2-3% growth rate to which we have become accustom. I do not share agreement with Prof. Cowen with regard to all of his historical or philosophical claims, despite my endorsement of the central thesis of the work. I would have liked to have seen Prof. Cowen provide more empirical evidence in support of his theses and propositions.
