A Future Perfect is a comprehensive examination of the most important revolution of our time—globalization—and how it will continue to change world economies, governments, and individual's lives.
Addressing questions posed by globalization's critics and proponents, Micklethwait and Wooldridge examine topics such as: Do businesses benefit from going global? Are we creating winner-take-all societies? Will globalization seal the triumph of junk culture? What will happen to individual careers?
Gathering evidence worldwide, from the shantytowns of São Paolo to the boardrooms of General Electric, from the troubled Russia-Estonia border to the booming San Fernando Valley sex industry, the authors deliver an illuminating tour of the global economy and a fascinating assessment of its potential impact. An important book for students of business, economics, and political science.
