Business Civilization in Decline

Heilbroner's argument in this thoughtful and stimulating book is that the disorders of capitalism are leading inevitably to socialistic economic planning. Even staunch capitalists will have to judge this an optimistic turn in Heilbroner's thinking, coming as it does hard on the heels of his extremely pessimistic An Inquiry Into the Human Prospect.
