Product description


“Impressive...Spence offers deep insights with a winning, refreshing humility rarely seen in Nobel Prize-winning economists.” ―The Washington Post

“An intelligent, rational, an dhumane book about the great economic event of our era...Anyone seeking a commonsense guide to the transformation underway need look no further.” ―Financial Times (London)

“Cogent, comprehensive, and compelling...Especially trenchant and timely.” ―The Huffington Post

“Rarely does one find a book that is so powerful in its analysis, timely in its topic, relevant in its thinking, and clear in its exposition.... This is by far the best book I have seen on today's historical growth transformation.” ―Mohamed A. El-Erian, author of When Markets Collide

“Fascinating...Having Spence as a brilliant guide, intimate with both the research and policy frontiers, is a perfect way to get up to speed.... Engaging, intellectual treatments like this one will surely make progress easier.” ―Science
