Abstract

The study examines the character and causes of the U.S. cconomy’s increasing service orientation and considers implications of the shift to services for economic growth, employment, and competitiveness. These changes present new challenges, but they do not in themselves mean that the U.S. economy will be less dynamic; or that there will be fewer good jobs; or that American industries will be less formidable in global markets. Quite the contrary.
