The "New York Times" national economics correspondent Peter S. Goodman takes us behind the headlines and exposes how the flow of capital from Asia and Silicon Valley to the suburbs of the housing bubble perverted America's economy. He argues that in the new environment of thrift and pullback, economic adaptation is possible, through new industries and new safety nets.
