Jeffrey A. Rosenweig’s scholarly study of the global economy is detailed, thought-provoking and rich in source material. Intelligently and clearly written, it is by no means light reading, and wasn’t intended to be. Rosensweig covers each corner of the globe, putting such issues as population, development and economic status in perspective. He expertly guides you through complex historical and financial issues and information, and manages to connect all the dots. getAbstract recommends this serious book to executives, managers and other thoughtful participants who are interested in present and future global commerce. "Serious" is the approach here, no dilettantes allowed.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why companies can’t afford to ignore the global economy any longer;
- How the increasing use of technology affects international business; and
- Why globalization must address the issues of poverty and environmental destruction.
