Bill Wolman, “Business Week” chief economist and Anne Colamosca say what our business and government leaders are unwilling to admit, but what most workers know in their gut: in the global economy, big money calls the shots and workers – white-collar professionals as well as blue-collar – are increasingly expendable. Drawing on history and their knowledge of how the world economy works, the authors demonstrate why downsizing will continue whether or not it makes America more competitive.
