The economic expansion that began in the spring of 1991 is now the longest in U.S. history. Why all this happened in the 1990's and who or what is responsible are matters of some debate right now. Public radio's award-winning business program, Marketplace
, offers a thorough analysis of some of the major questions about this economic prosperity: who gets the credit?; who got left behind?; and why haven't our economic competitors/allies across the Atlantic fared as well?
