Book Description

This book provides a detailed analysis of U.S. economic transformation in the last 50 years, including the principal drivers for economic growth, U.S. demographic transformation, and the changing sector structure of the U.S. economy. Economic Transformation of the United States, 1950-2000 , provides contemporary and histori-cal contexts to illustrate how technological innovation and the changing American ideology play a role in the process of U.S. economic transformation. It describes the services sector in which one set of service industries is indentified as "wealth providers" and another set as "job providers."
