Description

A Future Perfect is the first comprehensive examination of the most important revolution of our time--globalization--and how it will continue to change our lives. 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, John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge deliver an illuminating tour of the global economy and a fascinating assessment of its potential impact.

Review quote

"A tremendous book." --Newsweek "It is not just that Micklethwait and Wooldridge . . . write gloriously. . . . The book's substance is what really makes it stand out. . . . Judged in its entirety, with all its ambition and achievement, the book is a spectacular success." --Foreign Affairs "[A] compelling, witty discourse . . . To explain how globalization works, and how it came to pass, Micklethwait and Wooldridge take us on an extended world tour."--Fast Company "[The authors'] style is familiar to readers of The Economist smooth, witty, erudite. . . . Their book merits an A."--USA Today
