Book Excerpts

Kishore Mahbubani
New York: Public Affairs
Asians have absorbed many Western practices in economics, corporate governance, the rule of law and technology. As a result, by 2050, the world's three largest economies will be China, India and Japan.
Jonathan Fenby
London: Ecco, an Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers
In the late 1970s, China was a very poor country. The rising population, which reached 962 million in 1978, put a severe strain on food supplies. Average calorie intake was only marginally above the minimum survival requirements, particularly in rural areas. Some 250 million people lived in absolute poverty. Transport and infrastructure were primitive. Steel production was still low.
Daniel Griswold
Cato Institute
The book explains the benefits of free trade and globalization for middle-class, Main Street Americans.
