What if you could look behind the headlines of the global economy to see how it really worked? Instead of listening to pundits, politicians, and protestors, you could see firsthand how everyone from migrant workers to central bank governors lived their lives. Then you could decide for yourself where the big trends were heading.
Now you can. Connected: 24 Hours in the Global Economy isn’t another polemic for or against globalization. Daniel Altman takes you on a whirlwind journey through more than a dozen cities, gathering points of view from moguls, ministers, and the men and women on the street. At each stop, you’ll hear how the world’s workers played their parts in the events of a single day. Starting with their stories, related in their own words, you’ll take on pressing questions in new ways: Can poor countries become rich too quickly? Can corruption ever be a good thing? Do companies need crises in order to stay competitive? What determines the global economic pecking order? Most important, you’ll learn how the billions of decisions made by individuals can and do change the future.
Connected: 24 Hours in the Global Economy is part travel guide, part owner’s manual—an absorbing, accessible, and essential road map for every citizen of the global economy in the twenty-first century.

“Altman's book offers a Wall-Street-smart and yet deeply intellectual understanding of our amazingly complex and dynamic world economy.  He gives the reader a revealing perspective by viewing the economy at various magnifications, from little vignettes of individuals' experiences on a single day to grand observations on how it all works together.”   —Robert Shiller, Professor of Economics and Finance, Yale University; Chief Economist, MacroMarkets LLC; and author of Irrational Exuberance
“Instead of the usual heavy and indigestible fare, Daniel Altman cleverly serves bite-size, tasty portions of economic insight that will leave readers hungry for more.”   —Sylvia Nasar, author, A Beautiful Mind 
“There is a flood of books on Globalization, ranging from the bad to the good. To say something new seems beyond anyone's ability. Yet Dan Altman succeeds in doing just that. He makes the subject come alive, as only a gifted journalist can, by telling us in depth stories such as that of East Timor's struggles with new riches which illuminates the controversy that divides technocarts who want to push aid flows dramatically and the equally committed internationalists who worry about absorptive capacity. Buy, read and enjoy while getting instructed.”   —Jagdish Bhagwati, University Professor, Columbia University, and author of In Defense of Globalization

Points of view from the world's workers on how they played their parts in the events of a single day are captured in this examination of how the billions of decisions made by individuals can and do change the future.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I can never read the world business news the same way again. 26. Juli 2007
Von Reg Nordman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the penultimate insiders view of the world economy as Altman ( a serious business journalist with a PhD.), lets you peek inside the worlds of a dozen decision maker/influencers/ordinary people in many countries, in the same24 hr period. Fascinating and much more insightful than The World is Flat. I can never read the world business news the same way again. It caused me to renew my online The Economist subscription. I appreciated the inside views on currency exchanges, credit and inflation. The story of Haier in China - delightful vignettes. I had forgotten how much Japan lacked competition until pointed out by Altman. The background on why the US will continue to force its dollar lower is worth the book price. The story about the plight of Chinese peasants really pulls at your gut. A must read, it is topical, thought provoking and appropriate for our market planning.

4.0 von 5 Sternen You do the Thinking: Lessons on Global Economics 11. November 2007
Von Dennis DeWilde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
By now, we all know that "The World is Flat", and globalization (whatever that really means), is a fact, like it or not. But do we really understand global connections? In this interesting production of 14 magazine formatted articles - interjected with educational pieces on credit markets and currency, world stock markets, and oil's economic importance - economic writer, Daniel Altman asks the reader to do some thinking about how the global economics work. Altman asks 14 different questions with regard to global economics, and then does some educating on the subject using real time (15 June 2005) situations to argue both sides of the question.

If you are interested in, "Who really controls the world's money supply?" or, "Is immigration a luxury or a necessity?" then you will find this book of interest. Altman does not attempt to connect the dots for you, but the questions and the stories should give you `food for thought' about the development of our global economy. As the book is constructed using an article format, it is an easy read, even if the subjects are a bit on the `heavy' side. If you are a fan of The Economist magazine, this is a book for you.

"The Performance Connection"

4.0 von 5 Sternen Seems like a string of 14 newspaper articles beefed up and made into a book. A fun read! 1. Mai 2007
Von Jeff Lippincott - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The author is a journalist with a doctorate in economics from Harvard. He's written a nice book on the global economy. It's a fun read, and an easy read. Some will agree with him. While some won't. But at least the book gets one thinking.

Besides blurbs on credit markets & currency, stock markets, and oil, the book has 14 chapters as follows:

1. When does working together really work?

2. Can governments make global markets more competitive?

3. Do multinational companies bring progress or problems abroad?

4. What determines the global economic pecking order?

5. Who really controls the world's money supply?

6. What does corruption cost?

7. How important are financial markets to economic growth?

8. Is the financial system becoming more vulnerable to the actions of a few?

9. Which comes first, political or economic stability?

10. Can the United States set the global economy's rules?

11. Is immigration a luxury or a necessity?

12. Does it help the economy when ideas have owners?

13. Can a poor country get rich too quickly?

14. Do disruptive shocks help the economy in the long term?

I can't say I had a favorite chapter. And I agreed with some of the thoughts and disagreed with others. But I enjoyed reading the stories included. 4 stars!

3.0 von 5 Sternen A bit too dry, but solid in the fundamentals 15. Dezember 2010
Von Edward J. Barton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a pretty dry "audio" (I "read" the unabridged audiobook) presentation of 24 hours in the global economy. The material itself is technically solid, interesting to the economically minded, and has more than enough detail and explanation to allow the reader to see the interaction among all of the various elements of the global economy, as well as get an appreciation for the size and complexity of what happens on one given day (June 15). The downside is that the material isn't particularly engaging. Probably a read (or listen) appropriate to the econophile or business junkie who wants to appreciate the complexities of the global economy. However, if this isn't your bag of beans, the approach here won't really turn you on to the subject.

4.0 von 5 Sternen snack sized global econ 18. Dezember 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A quick enjoyable read that rides the global economic rollercoaster. The book is more of collection of stories and light theory loosely tied together under the rubric of economic globalization. It is heavier than most media pieces but much much lighter than any work on economic theory.

I found it to be a great little book for people who always wondered about global economic theory and trends, but not enough to grind through the real heavy academic tomes on the subject. The book avoids the "politics" of globalization, but I am sure that those who are anti-globalization will fault the book for not being anti-globalization enough.

The author never claims to be writing "the" book on globalization, instead it is a snapshot of one day and it definitely shows how fast paced and never-ending today's global economy really is.
