"The Next American Economy: Blueprint For a Real Recovery"

The Next American Economy, by William J. HolsteinRead the book that former President Bill Clinton calls "excellent." He also issued a formal endorsement, saying: "William J. Holstein’s 'The Next American Economy: Blueprint for a Real Recovery' is an essential roadmap for America’s renewal and an insightful reckoning of the global challenges ahead."
The Obama Administration also seems to be taking cues from the book. My book is not a silver-bullet solution to all that ails the economy, but Americans need to face up to our structural competitive challenges, rather than waiting for things to simply "bounce back to normal." That is never going to happen.

San Diego is enjoying a boom in genomics, for example, but finding people to interpret the results of what genetic testing machines find is so difficiult that employers are literally flying people in from China and India. There are not enough Americans who are "bioinformaticists."
