The Global Me
New Cosmopolitans And The Competitive Edge--picking Globalism's Winners And LosersBook - 2000
This is a Wall Street Journal correspondent's visionary, big-picture look at why countries, businesses, and people win and lose in an increasingly multicultural world.. Why is Japan, a country that looked economically invincible a decade ago stagnating, while long-moribund Ireland booms? What qualities will insure the continued dominance in the new millennium of U.S. culture, society and business? In The Global Me, The Wall Street Journal's G. Pascal Zachary provides a provocative roadmap to the new civilization arising out of sweeping shifts in the world economy. He reveals - through vivid examples of individuals and institutions - that the key new determinants for economic, political and cultural success are, surprisingly, national diversity and a mongrel sense of self. Roaming the globe, Zachary shows how the rise of new forms of identity and migration are helping to determine exactly who will win and lose in the next century.
