Seasoned economic journalist, Chrystia Freeland, offers an accessible exploration of history and the social factors that have led up to the present-day .01%’s claim to the largest-piece-of-the-‘economic’-pie. There are few books on the economy that are this plentiful with rich (no pun intended) anecdotes. With access into the worlds of the most powerful CEO’s (think Davos and TED), we enter the lifestyles and philosophies of the super-rich, coupled with fascinating and poignant historical information on the rise of India and China’s global economies. And what that means for all of us.
• Readers interested in the 1%, and how they got there.
• Anyone looking for an accessible look into how the economy and, by way, politics of the 21st century and how they operate.
• Those looking for a comprehensive account of Indian and China’s rise in the global economy.
