EDWARD LUCE
TIME TO START THINKING: AMERICA IN THE AGE OF DESCENT

Time to Start Thinking argues that America is losing its position at the top of the world’s pecking order. Financial Times columnist Edward Luce focuses on key critical issues: the changing structure of the U.S. economy, the polarization of politics, the debilitating effect of the “permanent election campaign,” the challenges involved in the overhaul of the country’s public education system, the desperate situation facing America’s middle class, and the health of American innovation in technology and business. Those unwilling to confront this reality may be tempted to blindly trust in American exceptionalism—but Luce argues that it is American pragmatism that will be the key to securing America’s future, if it is to be secured.
