504    Includes bibliographical notes (pages [211]-252) and 
520    "Bestselling author and economist Jay W. Richards makes 
       the definitive case for how the free market and individual
       responsibility can save the American Dream in an age of 
       automation and mass disruption. For two and a half 
       centuries, America has been held together by the belief 
       that if you work hard and conduct yourself responsibly in 
       this country, you will be able to prosper and leave a 
       better life for your children. But over the past decade, 
       that idea has come into crisis. A recession, the mass 
       outsourcing of stable jobs, and a coming wave of 
       automation that will replace millions of blue- and white-
       collar jobs alike have left many people worried that the 
       game is rigged and that our best days are behind us. In 
       this story-driven manifesto on the future of American work,
       Jay Richards argues that such thinking is 
       counterproductive making us more fragile, more dependent, 
       and less equipped to succeed in a rapidly changing 
       economy. If we're going to survive, we need a new model 
       for how ordinary people can thrive in this age of mass 
       disruption. Richards pulls back the curtain on what's 
       really happening in our economy, dispatching myths about 
       capitalism, greed, and upward mobility. And he tells the 
       stories of how real individuals have begun to rebuild a 
       culture of virtue, capitalizing on the skills that are 
       most uniquely human: creativity, resilience, and empathy 
       for the needs of others. Destined to take its place 
       alongside classics like Economics in One Lesson, The Human
       Advantage is the essential book for understanding the 
       future of American work, and how each of us can make this 
       era of staggering change work on our behalf." --
