   schema:description ""One of the "50 most powerful women in the world" (The Times), best-selling author Rosabeth Moss Kanter tackles America's most urgent domestic issue. America is stuck: just look at our crumbling roads and bridges, mismanaged railways, old-fashioned and easily overloaded air traffic control system, and perpetual lack of political will to do anything about it all. In contrast, take a trip around the world. Whiz through the "Chunnel" connecting England and France, get high-speed Internet and cell service on a remote mountain in Turkey, or travel in a driverless Mercedes in Germany, and see a future of possibilities that the United States is barely glimpsing. Whether you are a small business owner with rising transportation costs, an environmentally conscious citizen worried about greenhouse gases, a champion for social justice who knows that poorer citizens are often stuck in neighborhoods with the fewest transportation options, or simply a commuter who is all-too-familiar with traffic congestion, Rosabeth Moss Kanter's bold solutions will motivate all of us to move our transportation infrastructure into a cleaner, faster, and more prosperous future"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
