Abstract

The economic boom of the 1990s emboldened America’s political and business leaders to argue that their brand of free market enterprise was the most efficient economic system in the world. In the 1980s, those same leaders had been looking to Japan for lessons about how to run the economy. The boom made it easy to believe that there is one best way to organize the economy and that America had found it.
