If you are looking for a pretty easy to read and understand overview of the global economy then this is a good book for you. It presents a reasonably optimistic view of the global future with the necessary caveats. I also think it is a good book for those that don't have a strong grasp of how our economy works and how things fit in the context of history. I strongly recommend at least reading the first half of the book to get the big picture. The part I enjoyed the best was the realization that without some central global ruling force with the power to implement policies and enforce them, we are forced to deal with cooperation among nations. That always has been the challenge. It is hard for nationalistic self interest to look at the big picture of a more prosperous world. This is especially true in the USA where we got ours and are unwilling to make too many sacrifices in our lifestyles for the global good. It also makes you realize that it is the middle class of our country the feels the impacts of globalization the most. The rich continue to get the biggest piece of the pie. ( )
