Connected: 24 Hours in the Global Economy

With Daniel Altman

Wednesday, October 24, 2007 03:00 PM to 05:00 PM

 

Description:
Daniel Altman will discuss his latest book, Connected: 24 Hours in the Global Economy, which takes the reader 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.
