Osterman, Paul

SUMMARY

"Securing Prosperityis a balanced, comprehensive, and shrewd analysis of the changes that have buffeted the U.S. workplace over the past twenty years. Paul Osterman focuses on the huge rise in labor-market mobility and the shifting balance of power between employees and management, showing both the positive and negative sides of these developments. The book includes sensible policy recommendations to help ensure greater equity and efficiency in the labor market. This is applied scholarship at its best."--Sanford M. Jacoby, Management and Policy Studies, UCLA "This is the ideal book for anyone interested in how globalization and the new market economy have altered the lives of employees and what corrective measures might be taken to cushion the harmful effects without sacrificing the benefits. A balanced, highly informative account by an acknowledged expert in the field."--Derek Bok, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University "An intelligent, balanced, illuminating account of the challenges posed by the emerging labor market of the global information economy. Paul Osterman provides persuasive examples of innovative work systems and new community institutions that can satisfy both employers who need flexibility and employees who want security. The national policy debate will be enriched by Osterman's call for political vision to diminish the risks of job mobility without undermining it."--Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School, author ofWorld ClassandRosabeth Moss Kanter on the Frontiers of Management "This book is an important contribution both to policy discussions and to academic research on the contemporary American labor market.... Osterman writes simply and clearly."--Bruce Western, Princeton UniversityOsterman, Paul is the author of 'Securing Prosperity The American Labor Market How It Has Changed and What to Do About It', published 2000 under ISBN 9780691086880 and ISBN 0691086885.
