May 18, 2017

Heartland Institute Director of Communications Jim Lakely and Research Director S. T. Karnick speak with Robert Genetski, Ph.D., about his new book “Rich Nation, Poor Nation.”

Director of Communications Jim Lakely and Research Director S. T. Karnick speak with Robert Genetski, Ph.D., about his new book “Rich Nation, Poor Nation,” an examination and comparison of economic policies in countries around the world. Genetski’s book takes a deep dive into the economic data of the last 120 years to identify the policies that encourage economic growth and prosperity, and which ones lead to stagnation and a worsening of the human condition. They also discuss why Japan, once considered a cinch to be the world’s leading economic powerhouse, fell by the wayside, and what is the real story behind China’s strong global economic position.
