Product description

Hardly a day passes when newspaper headlines or media commentators don't scream warnings of impending doom--shortages of arable land, clashes over water, and political Armageddon as global demand for fossil fuels far outstrips supply--but only one country appears to understand the importance of controlling these crucial assets: China. In Winner Take All, international economist and bestselling author Dambisa Moyo explains the implications of China's aggressive rush for resources around the world, a campaign that surpasses even the voracious demands for raw materials sparked by the Industrial Revolution. As Moyo compellingly argues, China's seemingly unstoppable drive will have global consequences for us all.
