Dismantling the cold war economy by Ann R Markusen( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For five decades the American economy has devoted some of its best resources to waging the Cold War. By the 1990s, this investment had not only made the United States the world's high-tech cop but had also successfully launched many new industries--computing, chip-based electronics, and satellite communications. But this military-based industrial policy has come at a high social and economic price, as the authors demonstrate in the first comprehensive reassessment of the military-industrial complex in twenty years. Based on extensive new data (much hitherto unpublished) and on interviews with defense industry executives, Pentagon officials, and community and union leaders, this book shows in disturbing detail how Cold War technologies have distorted and drained the economy. Military-led industrial policy has misfocused our research efforts, displaced more jobs than were created, and weakened our ability to compete effectively in world markets. The authors argue that a reversal in the long downward slide of the American economy will require a concerted effort at economic conversion. To counter the long-time military domination of science and technology development, they outline a national "needs-driven" science and technology policy to restore standards of living and industrial vitality. To overcome the "wall of separation" between military-industrial culture and the rest of American life, they propose an integrated economic development strategy designed to break addiction to Pentagon patronage. Here is a blunt and meticulously researched critique of the bitter economic fruits of the Cold War--and a plan for a cure
The internet, organizational change, and labor : the challenge of virtualization by David C Jacobs( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The focus of The Internet, Social Intelligence & Labor is the impact of the Internet on human resources and the balance of power between labor and management. The Internet has contributed to the organization and mobilization of workers facing multinational corporations; it has permitted instantaneous contact across borders; it also facilitates communication among managers and permits the coordination of dispersed workplaces. Managers may more easily control an international network of production sites on-line. The Internet provides opportunities for managers and workers to pursue their overlapping and conflicting goals."--Jacket
