THE AGE OF THE UNTHINKABLE: PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE AGE OF
THE UNTHINKABLE

Why the New World Disorder Constantly
Surprises Us And What We Can Do About It

BY JOSHUA COOPER RAMO

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Today the very ideas that made America great imperil its future. Our plans go awry and policies fail. History's grandest war against terrorism creates more terrorists. Global capitalism, intended to improve lives, increases the gap between rich and poor. Decisions made to stem a financial crisis guarantee its worsening. Environmental strategies to protect species lead to their extinction. The traditional physics of power has been replaced by something radically different. In The Age of the Unthinkable, Joshua Cooper Ramo puts forth a revelatory new model for understanding our dangerously unpredictable world. Drawing upon history, economics, complexity theory, psychology, immunology, and the science of networks, he describes a new landscape of inherent unpredictability--and remarkable, wonderful possibility.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



Joshua Cooper Ramo is Managing Director and a partner at Kissinger Associates, one of the world's leading strategic advisory firms. Prior to joining Kissinger Associates, he was Assistant Managing Editor of Time and worked in the advisory and banking business in China.

I agree that global captalism is a bad thing. I would like to see if the author has the same reasons that I think that. I would love to read the book.

I would like to win this because, besides being interested in the subject matter, we know his mom! (And didn't he turn out to be a good looking boy!) :--)

Ranurgis said...

For years now I've been wondering how we can keep spiraling ever higher with wages and prices; millionaires becoming billionaires; the ever-increasing gap between the haves and have-nots; people getting millions for doing very little. I have little grasp of economics, but I just couldn't and still can't understand how we could go on this way. Something had to give. I hope this book gives me some explanation for what happened.
