This book focuses on the post cold war global economic environment. The idea is that we have transitioned from a fairly clear cut largely centrally directed conflict in the cold war to a little understood amorphous and distributed engagement called globalization. The actors in this globalization economic environment are not under some centralized control but behave as in a herd - in this case an electronic herd that can shift directions very quickly. Some are in position to take advantage of this and others are bewildered. As this book was first published in 1999, it has aged. Remarkably little was said about China or its methods to achieve industrialization. For that matter, little is made of various theories for countries attempting to achieve industrialization. Instead, there are a number of fascinating anecdotes.

What a colossal idiot. Hello, anybody behind the curtain? Offshore jobs, and without jobs expect Americans to prosper? Frieakman's head is flat! No wonder Goldman Sachs loves Freaky Friedman! [Should have been titled: The Loser and Olive Garden
