The World is Curved: Hidden Dangers to the Global Economy

Described by New York Times columnist David Brooks as "astonishingly prescient," David Smick's The World Is Curved picks up where Thomas Friedman's The World Is Flat left off. Smick describes the underside of globalization, the financial dangers looming just over the horizon. He argues that the economic model under which the World has been operating has crash-landed - and it's time for a new financial doctrine for the twenty-first century.
