Main description

Who owns our economic future?

No one knows the answer for sure, but Joseph Quinlan provides some very compelling ideas.

In The Last Economic Superpower, the chief market strategist for Bank of America's Global Wealth and Investment Management unit meticulously examines governmental and business reactions to the recent recession. He argues compellingly that globalization and free-market capitalism are in retreat—and that major alterations to present strategies are necessary to avoid an economic “cold war.” The solution, Quinlan asserts, is a cooperative effort on the part of the United States with emerging countries, such as China, to shape a new economy that promotes world-wide economic growth and reduces the risks of wars and cross-border conflicts.

Sure to stand among the most important and influential books about the global economy in recent years, The Last Economic Superpower offers key insight into the subject from one of the few authors qualified to provide it.
