Description

Our planet's resources are running out. The media bombards us with constant warnings of impending shortages of fossil fuels, minerals, arable land, and water and the political Armageddon that will result as insatiable global demand far outstrips supply. But how true is this picture? In Winner Take All, Dambisa Moyo cuts through the misconceptions and noise surrounding resource scarcity with a penetrating analysis of what really is at stake. Revealing the hard facts behind the insatiable global demand for economic growth, Moyo shows how in this race for resources, China is way out in front. Tracing China's breathtaking quest for commodities, Moyo examines the impact this is having on us all and its profound implication for our future.

Review quote

'You must read this book if you want to understand the reality of what's happening in the world today. I am afraid the West is going to wake up too late to prepare for the future.' - Jim Rogers, author of Hot Commodities and A Gift to My Children.
