Sonic Boom: Globalization at Mach Speed - used book

2008, ISBN: 9781400063956

ID: 6023807

Here's the good news: Democracy is spreading, and most economies in the world are now free. Superpowers are competing economically rather than fighting militarily. Stuff we need is getting better and cheaper. Increased opportunities for women are doubling the world's supply of ideas. Here's the downside: Internationally linked computerized economies mean twenty-four-hour stress. Frequent shakeups in industries will cause more job insecurity. Climate change is about to accelerate global disruption. Writing with the "lively wit and contrarian insight" ("The Wall Street Journal") that are his trademarks, Gregg Easterbrook welcomes you to the Sonic Boom Economy: an explosive time of unprecedented growth, progress, and change that will leave all of us at one time or another anxious, uneasy, and stressed out of our minds. The financial crisis that started in 2008 was just the beginning-and a bellwether for the future. As we make our way out of the recession, continuing globalization, interconnectedness, and technological advances will mean great prosperity, ingenuity, dislocation, instability, and financial distress-all at once. Shenzen, China, has become the fourth largest port in the world, in a single generation creating both income and upheaval; Waltham, Massachusetts, is booming as New England's answer to Silicon Valley, but it's no longer hospitable to workers in fading mercantile industries; and Yakutsk, Russia, the coldest major city in the world, may benefit from global warming while Houston becomes too stifling to inhabit and Florida a swampland. Yet with crucial optimism, Sonic Boom offers concrete examples and indispensable advice on how to be on the winning side of these dizzying times. Here's how to innovate (in Erie, Pennsylvania, a huge old-fashioned factory uses new methods to build high-efficiency, low-polluting railroad locomotives), diversify (General Electric went from selling lightbulbs to jets to green tech), and use common sense (the French health-care system, which pays doctors for phone and email consultations, ultimately makes treatment faster and cheaper). Gregg Easterbrook, whom "Forbes "called "the best writer on complex topics in the United States," definitively captures this unnerving period in economic history in an important book that's as eye-opening as it is hopeful, as provocative as it is ultimately positive.

Gregg Easterbrook on Sonic Boom Probably the international recession is ending--so what comes next? A Sonic Boom is what comes next. Dramatic global economy growth is likely to resume, especially in the developing world, where growth is needed most. Prosperity should start back upward. Goods and service will continue getting better and cheaper. That's the boom part. But job anxiety and economic insecurity will accelerate, too. Even as the global economy recovers, we may not feel especially good, because economic change will keep coming faster. That's the sonic part. A sonic boom is powerful, but also nerve-shattering. History teaches that when some crisis interrupts larger trends, as soon as the crisis concludes, the larger trends resume. Before the international economic crisis that began in late 2007, the larger trends were robust global growth and rising economic insecurity. Look for both trends to resume in a Sonic Boom world. Many aspects of a Sonic Boom world will be wonderful. Faster, cheaper communication; easy global access to information and knowledge; rapid innovation, including for green energy; increasing freedom, especially women's freedom; greater awareness of other cultures. Women's freedom will itself double the world's supply of ideas!

Easterbrook, Gregg:
Sonic Boom - new book

ISBN: 9781400063956

ID: 411447

What can a spell-checker tell you about economic trends? Why is the world's supply of ideas about to double? What did America get right in the nineteenth century that it's getting wrong in the twenty-first? If Karl Marx were alive today, would he be hosting a show on Fox News? These are just a few of the provocative questions asked by Sonic Boom, a (mainly) optimistic look at the near future. Sonic Boom tells why the world's economy is likely to be just fine, with prosperity increasing; why globalization will soon drive us even crazier than it does today; why a chaotic, raucous, unpredictable, stress-inducing, free, prosperous, well-informed, and smart future is coming. The book is rich with specific examples and advice on how to navigate your own way through the craziness that's ahead. Forbes calls Gregg Easterbrook the best writer on complex topics in the United States, and Sonic Boom will show you why. Business Business eBook, Random House Publishing Group
