Book: Culture and Prosperity
Friday, May 28, 2004; 12:00 PM
What is at the heart of America's economic success? Why do free market systems seem to thrive in certain countries and flounder in others? What sort of impact will outsourcing and globalization have on the economies of the world?
In his new book, "Culture and Prosperity: The Truth About Markets - Why Some Nations Are Rich But Most Remain Poor," Financial Times columnist and BBC commentator John Kay argues that there is no such thing as a perfect overarching economic system, and that global markets work best when different nations choose different models for successful economies.
Kay will be online to discuss his new book, economics and the ideological myths of markets.
