Abstract or Description

Is America in decline? An outpouring of books, articles, speeches and public commentary gives a clear, affirmative answer. A recent Harris poll confirms the result. -Internal problems such as drugs, crime, educational failures, a low saving rate, and lack of "competitiveness" combine with persistent deficits in international trade and payments to support the views of those who believe we are in decline.
