The United States' economy continues to lag in comparison to that of many other developed countries. This is a situation to which American managers are not accustomed and for which they have not been prepared.

Although the growth rate has been increasing over the past two decades, it still consistently lags behind the GNP growth rates of other industrialized countries. Figure 1 illustrates this problem.
