Editorial Reviews

Review

"In a new book of essays, The United States as a Developing Country (Cambridge, 1992), historian Martin J. Sklar presents a model of capitalist development that is far more relevant to the present than the factory-centered one that still dominates much political and economic thought." John B. Judis, In These Times

"This book interprets American development in the early part of the century and offers intriguing perspectives on modernization and periodization; it also illuminates Sklar's own intellectual odyssey from outrage and despair over American life to acceptance and almost celebration." Emily S. Rosenberg, American Historical Review

"[These] essays present provocative ideas and offer an interesting perspective on the intellectual evolution of a member of the 'Wisconsin School.'...makes interesting reading." David S, Foglesong, Journal of Interdisciplinary History

Book Description

Seven essays are primarily concerned with the U.S. as a developing country in the early twentieth century--undergoing stages of development from competitive capitalism to corporate capitalism, and from industrial to "postindustrial" society.

By Alan G. Nasser Sr. on January 21, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book essentially discusses the process by which the US economy reached industrial maturity.The concept of maturity used to be common among economists but it has unfortunately fallen out of use in the contemporary argot of economics. Sklar discusses the social, cultural and political expressions of an economy in which net investment, additional cash outlays to finance additions to capital stock, has become obsolete. The analysis is rich in empirical detail and subtle in its theoretical innovations. A brilliant book.
