   schema:description "They contend that this would not only improve the rate of technological advancement, but would also broaden the distribution of benefits derived from the resulting economic growth. As many noneconomic goals are also present in society, the authors insist that markets must be subjected to democratic political control. If we are to achieve the growth necessary to induce innovation, the government must adopt a proactive role, as only it can do."@en ;

This important work will add insight into our current economic situation and will serve as a catalyst for further, and much-needed, debate on today's economy."@en ;
   schema:description "Because rapid economic growth is the sole means by which living standards can be advanced, according to the authors, a commitment to raising productivity should be an essential component of democratic politics. Ferleger and Mandle believe that enhanced educational opportunities for the American people, particularly minorities, are the best way to accelerate productivity growth."@en ;
