OPEN TO CARNEGIE NEW LEADERS

Power, Inc.: The Epic Rivalry Between Big Business and Government---and the Reckoning That Lies Ahead

Description

Power, Inc. examines how we have reached a point where thousands of companies have greater power than all but a handful of states. David Rothkopf traces the jockeying for influence right up to today's financial crises and resulting battles over the proper role of government and markets. He argues that these recent developments, coupled with the rise of powers like China and India, may not lead to the triumph of American capitalism that was celebrated just a few years ago. Instead, he considers an unexpected scenario, a contest among competing capitalisms offering different visions for how the world should work, a global ideological struggle in which European and Asian models may have advantages.

David Rothkopf is the CEO and Editor-at-Large of Foreign Policy and President and CEO of Garten Rothkopf, an international advisory firm specializing in transformational trends especially those associated with energy choice and climate change, emerging markets and global risk He is also a visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, where he chairs the Carnegie Economic Strategy Roundtable. He was formerly chief executive of Intellibridge Corporation, managing director of Kissinger Associates, and U.S. deputy under-secretary of commerce for international trade policy.
