“Jerry Davis offers a gut-wrenching, mind-blowing picture of the Uberized society we are more or less blindly constructing. It raises radical questions for how we should collectively organize and individually navigate this brave new world, forces us to look afresh at how market and government should be allowed to interact, and puts our existing economic and political philosophies to the test.”
—Philip Pettit, L. S. Rockefeller University Professor of Politics and Human Values, Princeton University, and Distinguished University Professor of Philosophy, Australian National University
“This is a brilliant book that describes the evolution of America's economic ecosystem and the implications of the ‘task-based' economy for employees and society more generally.”
—Jeffrey Pfeffer, Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University
“Davis challenges the future of the corporation and of traditional jobs in a world of digital disruption and decentralization. The implications are significant, but so are the opportunities. Davis offers us a way to understand the significance of the change and to lead through it. Great insights and inspiration.”
—Jim Hagemann Snabe, former Co-CEO, board member, and Chairman, SAP
“Fast-paced, brilliantly written, and deeply informed. The best overview yet of the rise and fall of the giant corporation, the new technologies, and the opportunities and dangers—personal as well as political—we now confront.”
—Gar Alperovitz, author of What Then Must We Do? and Co-Chair, The Next System Project
“This book is a comprehensive commentary on the history of public corporations in America. It provides an excellent insight on the rising fortunes of these corporations and dwells on their imminent fall. Elegantly paced, it gives glimpses of the social and economic impact of corporations on nations and makes for very good reading.”
—S.D. Shibulal, cofounder and former CEO, Infosys
“Job One for the modern business academic is to provide actionable advice to help businesses create meaningful jobs and contribute to broad economic prosperity. Jerry Davis shows himself again to be a tower of strength in this quest with his brilliant new book. It is a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of democratic capitalism.”
—Roger Martin, Institute Director, Martin Prosperity Institute, and former Dean, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto
Contrary to popular opinion, the American public corporation is on the decline. Leading scholar Gerald Davis explains the social and economic pressures behind the rise and fall of the American corporation, the surprising negative consequences, and what the post-corporate future may hold.
