Time to Start Thinking: America in the Age of Descent

Time to Start Thinking: America in the Age of Descent

Edward Luce


"Gentlemen, we now have run out of cash. it's time to begin thinking."-Sir Ernest Rutherford, winner of the Nobel Prize in Nuclear Physics

Time to begin Thinking is a booklet destined to spark debate between liberals and conservatives alike. Drawing on his a long time of remarkable journalism and his connections inside of Washington and all over the world, Luce advances a delicately built and arguable argument, subsidized up by way of interviews with the various key gamers in politics and enterprise, that the USA is wasting its pragmatism - and that the implications of this can quickly depart the rustic excessive and dry.

Luce turns his recognition to a couple of various key concerns which are set to impact America's place on the planet order: the altering constitution of the united states economic system, the ongoing polarization of yankee politics; the debilitating influence of the "permanent election campaign"; the demanding situations fascinated by the overhaul of the country's public schooling process; and the health-or sickliness-of American innovation in know-how and enterprise. His end, "An unprecedented problem" appears at America's dwindling ideas in an international the place the speed is more and more being set elsewhere.
