The problem is, the author is too indignant to contemplate making peace with her corporate enemies. All Treasure The Long Boom: A Vision for the Coming Age of Prosperity is the well-known thesis of Peter Schwartz, founder of the Global Business Network and pioneer of the scenario method of planning.
In his youth, Schwartz was a student radical.
His enthusiasm and idealism have metamorphosed into advocating certain key technologies and arguing the following: Together, it is argued, emerging technologies have the power to create global prosperity, save the environment, emancipate women, eradicate want.
Only the cobra is missing. Schwartz has been an advocate of new paradigms since his early work at SRI International in the late s.
Indeed, scenario planning, with its coherent visions of alternative futures in place of the traditional forecast and attempts by corporations to predict and control specific outcomes, is one of the manifestations of the new paradigm.
They predict the fuel cell will, in less than a decade, halve automobile emissions and soon thereafter eliminate them altogether, when the hydrogen-gasoline fusion system gives way to the hydrogen cell. Automobiles will be much lighter and less noisy. Economics will shift to local manufacture in far smaller runs, and customized brands will proliferate.
The fuel cell, already in research laboratories in a dozen advanced economies, is not the only eco-friendly technology the authors acclaim. They have high hopes for nanotechnology. Its tiny engines promise an eco-friendly form of biological wealth and life creation.
They have attracted the attention of the Japanese, whose love of miniaturization has deep roots. Indeed, one of the pleasures of this book is its readiness to utilize cultural diversity in a global system.
If all this seems too utopian, too like the Age of Aquarius on which several Global Business Network members were weaned, some skepticism is in order. The authors do not consider the spread of lethal technologies or of technologies with predatory values attached to them, although the United States government sponsors these selectively.
The problem with their thesis is that it strengthens the notion that technology will somehow save us from earlier mistakes, from those technologies that spurred global warming and unsustainable economic development and condemned sizable sectors of our global citizenry to employment at very low wages.
A Future Perfect: The Challenge and Hidden Promise of Globalization is an engaging book by two journalists for The Economist , John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge, and it is a primer on neoclassical economics as the only discipline of genuinely global application. When any issue clashes with economic orthodoxy, Micklethwait and Wooldridge brush it deftly aside. Interestingly, they approve of protesting these practices if the protest takes economic forms — labeling textiles as free of child labor, for example.
I regard child labor as both morally abhorrent and stupid, saddling nations with unschooled adults for the rest of their natural lives. We do not hear of these kinds of regional adaptations.
This book is at its best in exploding myths. Another myth is that globalization is a zero-sum game.
The authors argue convincingly that additional value is created, even if some players lose. Understanding Globalization Author Thomas L. Most noticeable about his writing is his wonderful way with metaphors, of which the Lexus and the Olive Tree are but two, powerfully contrasted. Although metaphors are generally regarded as forms of literary license and style — more common, perhaps, in journalism than in academia — Friedman uses them brilliantly to capture the major tensions between global forces.
The resulting work, in contrast to the one-sided views of Hertz, is balanced and well reasoned, which is of real value to puzzled executives. Get to Know Us. site Payment Products. English Choose a language for shopping.
