Inhaltsangabe: A primary reason the United States became a great economic power was the industriousness of its people. Most Americans believed that hard work and profits provided a righteous and worthwhile life. The American vision involved not only economic betterment but also a willingness to work toward that more prosperous future.
The factors that produced a strong work ethic and the conditions that led to this decline are examined and analyzed. The lethargy of poor Americans and the lack of the drive to improve their situations are likewise investigated.
Another factor explored is the rise of other nations' awareness of the work ethic and the importance of its being developed.

"One of the reasons the United States became a great economic power was, quite simply, the industriousness of its people. Most Americans believed that hard work and profits provided a righteous and worthwhile life. As America became affluent, a preoccupation with leisure and sensual pleasure began to replace traditional work values. The book examines the loss of the work ethic and pursuit of leisure by contemporary Americans and the forces that have destroyed traditional work values. To understand today's pervasive indolence, we must analyze the factors that produced a storng work ethic in the past and the conditions that led to its historic decline. We must consider how affluent Americans are trained to be lazy by parents, teachers, employers, and the entertainment media. We must also study the widespread lethargy among many poverty-stricken Americans who, unlike previous generations of the poor, make little attempt to improve their situation. In order to promote industriousness at school and work, we need to understand the nature and causes of strong work values. ".index. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 40835
