    Six Myths That Hold Back America
    by Frank Newman

    Why is China booming while the American economy lags?
    Despite a globally challenging economic environment, production in China has grown significantly every year, for the past twenty years. America’s GDP, by contrast, fell during the serious recession of 2008-9, and is now struggling to achieve even tepid growth. Why should this be?
    Over the last decade, economic thought and attitudes in the West have increasingly diverged from the underlying views in China, and significant contrasts have developed. Six Myths that Hold Back America analyzes key statements of accepted economic views in the U.S. to determine which have real basis in the U.S. financial system, and which are really just myths.
    Refreshing, stimulating, independent thinking—Frank Newman draws upon a wealth of practical experience in the private and public sectors, including his time as CEO of major banks in the U.S. and China, andin his role as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Treasury. This experience at home and abroad helps him dissect a series of common economic beliefs and develop conclusions that deeply challenge conventional assumptions about the American economy.
