Bestselling author and economist Jay W. Richards makes the definitive case for how the free market and individual responsibility can save the American Dream in an age of automation and mass disruption. For two and a half centuries, America has been held together by the belief that if you work hard, you will be able to prosper and leave a better life for your children. But this idea has come into crisis. A coming wave of automation that will replace millions of blue-and white-collar jobs alike has left many people worried that our best days are behind us.

Jay Richards argues that such thinking is counterproductive–making us more fragile, more dependent, and less equipped to succeed in a rapidly changing economy. If we’re going to survive, we need a new model for how ordinary people can thrive in this age of mass disruption. Richards pulls back the curtain on what’s really happening in our economy. And he tells the stories of how real individuals have begun to rebuild a culture of virtue, capitalizing on the skills that are uniquely human: creativity, resilience, and empathy for the needs of others.

The Human Advantage is the essential book for understanding the future of American work, and how each of us can make this era of staggering change work on our behalf.
