Old ways, new game
Shows the stakes of the global economic competition for individual Americans and for the nation. Shows how major American companies are faring in their battles with Japanese and German competition. Moves from an up-to-date look at mass production, craft production, and lean production in the auto industry to new races for "voice" computers and laptops. Examines the Japanese drive to challenge America's lead in basic research by setting up labs in the U.S. and hiring top American scientists.
