About the Book

At the millennium, many Americans are concerned about the future. To maintain contemporary lifestyles, many families require two incomes. Yet there is the dilemma of a decline in living standards in the face of robust economic growth. This book offers fresh insights into the fundamental, revolutionary changes occurring in the work force and the new creation of wealth. The author's optimistic view is that the scientific and technological revolutions currently underway may offer solutions to the very problems they create and pave the way for a renewal of the American dream.
