Director of Communications Jim Lakely and Research Director S. T. Karnick speak with Robert Genetski, Ph.D., about his new book Rich Nation, Poor Nation: Why Some Nations Prosper While Others Fail, an examination and comparison of economic policies in countries around the world.
Genetski’s book takes a deep dive into the economic data of the last 120 years to identify the policies that encourage economic growth and prosperity, and which ones lead to stagnation and a worsening of the human condition. They also discuss why Japan, once considered a cinch to be the world’s leading economic powerhouse, fell by the wayside, and what is the real story behind China’s strong global economic position.
