A New World View
A new world view is taking shape.

Rising from the ashes of nation-based economies, economic growth springs from regional-based states. Yesterday’s economic theories are no longer relevant. Today’s worldwide economy is powered by technology. Knowledge is its currency.

Kenichi Ohmae, a business and corporate strategist and author of more than 100 books, explores the implications and opportunities posed these new drivers of growth and economic power. He offers a strategy for coping in an era where it is tougher to define companies, customers and competitors than ever before.

Among his insights:

• Leaders who ignore the borderless world are doing so at their own peril.
• National- and economic-based policy is obsolete. Failure to address international money flows renders it meaningless.
• Business decisions are four dimensional in today's borderless world. The include communications, capital, corporations and consumers.
• Competitiveness is enhanced by building on common platforms.

Ohmae opens his book admitting ideas rarely emerge perfectly formed. They evolve; they develop. For a first pass, The Next Worldwide Stage is a thoughtful, insightful, well-written and easily understood rendering of the post-globalized world. ( )

This book was ok. The ideas are not terribly original. As someone on Amazon pointed out, just a different take on the same ideas as Friedman's "World is Flat". After about quarter ways through the book, I flipped to the last section where he starts spewing his proposals one how the world should change e.g. more decentralisation between govt and provinces, probably an extension of his ideas from his previous book. He talks much about the nation state and its continued relevance. I returned the book to the library soon after. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 013147944X, Hardcover)

Globalization is a fact. You can't stop it; it has already happened; it is here to stay. And we are moving into a new global stage.

A radically new world is taking shape from the ashes of yesterday's nation-based economic world. To succeed, you must act on the global stage, leveraging radically new drivers of economic power and growth. Legendary business strategist Kenichi Ohmae–who in The Borderless World, published in 1990, predicted the rise and success of globalization, coining the very word–synthesizes today's emerging trends into the first coherent view of tomorrow's global economy–and its implications for politics, business, and personal success.

Ohmae explores the dynamics of the new "region state," tomorrow's most potent economic institution, and demonstrates how China is rapidly becoming the exemplar of this new economic paradigm. The Next Global Stage offers a practical blueprint for businesses, governments, and individuals who intend to thrive in this new environment. Ohmae concludes with a detailed look at strategy in an era where it's tougher to define competitors, companies, and customers than ever before.

As important as Huntington's The Clash of Civilizations, as fascinating as Friedman's The Lexus and the Olive Tree, this book doesn't just explain what's already happened: It offers a roadmap for action in the world that's beginning to emerge.
