Lester Thurow argues now is the time to shape globalization into what we want it to be -- before it's too late. Today, he explains, we are at a critical crossroads in the development of the global economy. We can sit back and let it grow as it will, or we can "seize the moment and build economic systems that will minimize instability, allow second and third world countries to thrive, and protect and enhance our own American interests. In short, a win/win global economy that benefits all participants.
Globalization, says Thurow, can be shaped.
In "Fortune Favors the Bold, Thurow provides an insightful analysis of the ills of globalization and, more important, offers solutions. He tackles subjects such as: The dangers of the burgeoning U.S. trade deficit and the falling dollar Solving the problem of intellectual property rights violations Restarting Japan's stagnating economy How best to help underdeveloped countries enter the global economy Reforming the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund
Further, Thurow shows how the economic successes of Ireland and China provide a model forother countries to follow. He even proposes creating anew role for a "Chief Knowledge Officer" to help guide companies and governments in the developing global knowledge-based economy of the 21st century.
Globalization will continue whether we like it our not. We are at a critical moment; great challenges lay ahead, and our economic future is at stake. Now, with "Fortune Favors the Bold, we have a map and guidebook to a prosperous economic future.
