Summary
"What's the most powerful, dynamic, and irresistible force at work in the 2lst-century economy? If you said globalization, millions of people agree with you - and all of you might be wrong. In Against the Dead Hand, Brink Lindsey looks at the realities of globalization and concludes that the genie is not yet out of the bottle." "Against the Dead Hand traces the rise and fall of the central-planning ideologies that dominated the 20th century, from the extreme of Soviet Communism to social democracy in the West to the protectionism seen virtually everywhere. It reveals the remarkable extent to which the "dead hand" of the old collectivist dream still shapes the contours of today's world economy, and it explains the complex political and economic dynamics that drive globalization forward in spite of the obstacles." "This book combines historical perspective and analytical insight with incisive and colorful reporting from the world's current economic trouble spots. Lindsey's rich and nuanced portrait of globalization provides invaluable guidance for investors, entrepreneurs, and corporate managers who must contend with the uncertainty and volatility that now roils the world economy."--BOOK JACKET
