Reviews
"A convincing book that could make a big difference in the way we think about modern economic problems."--Peter Passell, New York Times Book Review

"A canonical account of how economies become less flexible and dynamic as they age. . . . Today, as the U.S. limps from crisis to crisis, amid slow productivity growth, high inequality, and increasing political dysfunction, Olson's critique feels urgently relevant."--Walter Frick, Harvard Business Review

"[Crises in housing, clean energy, health care, and transportation] . . . are all interlinked problems, and perhaps the best place to start understanding these challenges is a short book from 1982 by economist Mancur Olson, humbly titled The Rise and Decline of Nations."--Dylan Matthews, Vox
