- “This guide is partly a detective story. After 9/11 I knew, if I wanted additional reinforcement, that we live in a brand new world – the world of a worldwide capitalist economic system that’s vastly extra versatile, resilient, open, self-correcting, and fast-changing than it was even 1 / 4 century earlier. It’s a world that presents us with huge new prospects but in addition huge new challenges. The Age of Turbulenceis my try to grasp the character of this new world: how we bought right here, what we’re dwelling via, and what lies over the horizon, for good and for sick. Where potential, I convey my understanding within the context of my very own experiences. I do that out of a way of accountability to the historic file, and in order that listeners will know the place I’m coming from.
- “The guide is due to this fact divided in halves: the primary half is my effort to retrace the arc of my studying curve, and the second half is a extra goal effort to make use of this as the muse on which to erect a conceptual framework for understanding the brand new world economic system. Along the best way I discover vital components of this rising world atmosphere: the rules governing it; the huge vitality infrastructure that powers it; the worldwide monetary imbalances and dramatic shifts in world demographics that threaten it; and, regardless of its unquestioned success, the continual concern over the justice of the distribution of its rewards. Finally, I convey collectively what we will fairly conjecture concerning the make-up of the world economic system in 2030.
