Another possible book club choice

This sounds interesting in light of our ASET book club read of The Race between Education and Technology.

From the reviews:

To the point, current, and insightful. Great links throughout the book. Easy enough for almost everyone who can sit down for 2 hours to read in one sitting.

I am generally no fan of Hayek and/or Schumpeter, but these authors show how some of the thinking offers a refreshing alternative to Reich and Krugman by showing that policy need not be configured for cataclysmic austerity to support innovation and growth. They encourage investment in education and infrastructure as well as a sturdy safety net, while pointing out that the realities are that some jobs and benefits are gone forever.
