'Lazonick successfully marries economic theory to the history of technology and business organization ... He then applies this blend of insights to contemporary issues of economic growth in Japan and relative decline in Britain and America. The result is a controversial but richly informative analysis - almost an intellectual hand grenade tossed into contemporary discussions. It is hard to think of another scholar who could match the combination of boldness, graceful writing, and intellectual challenge.' Thomas McCraw, Harvard University
