In 2010 Peter Navarro and Glen Hubbard released Seeds of Destruction: Why the Path to Economic Ruin Runs Through Washington, and How to Reclaim American Prosperity. In this powerful, timely, and nonpartisan book, Hubbard and Navarro take on the most important problem of our age -- a decade-long pattern in which the American economy has grown below its full potential, giving rise to fears about the nation’s future prosperity.
The analytical approach the two authors take is as innovative as it is insightful. They begin by explaining that the growth of any nation is propelled by four drivers -- consumption, business investment, government spending, and net exports. The authors then use this
GDP Growth Driver equation to illustrate how each of the four components of the American economy suffer from major structural imbalances. To understand that these structural imbalances make it virtually impossible for the American economy to reach its full potential growth rate is to understand that the key to solving America's economic problems lies in rebalancing the American economy.
Death by China is Navarro's latest book (co-authored with Greg Autry), which is also a documentary feature. The book challenges the dominant paradigm of a
Chinese Miracle – the one featuring a modernizing, progressive Chinese state and provides all the details behind the Communist Party’s:
Weapons of Jobs Destruction, aggressive military build up, product quality nightmares, and human rights abuses.
