Three Billion New Capitalists The Great Shift of Wealth and Power to the East
By Clyde Prestowitz

By the beginning of this century it was already commonplace to speak of the U. S. as a hyperpower, to talk of its military, political, and economic clout as unprecedented in world history, and to assume that American dominance would continue at least throughout our lifetimes. It is conventional wisdom that America will have no serious rivals for at least a generation. But the American position is far more fragile and ephemeral than much of the world believes. Clyde Prestowitz shows the powerful yet barely visible trends that are threatening to end the six-hundred-year run of Western domination of the world. The trends include Americas increasingly unsustainable trade deficits; the equally unsustainable (and dangerous) buildup of massive dollar reserves in places like Japan and China; the end of Americas position as the worlds premier center for invention and technological innovation; the sudden entrance of 2. 5 billion people in India and China into the worlds skilled job market; the role of the World Wide Web in permitting many formerly localized jobs to be done anywhere in the world; and the demographic meltdown of Europe, Japan, Russia, and, in later decades, even China. Three Billion New Capitalists is a clear-eyed and profoundly unsettling look at Americas and the worlds economic future, from an author with a history of predicting the important trends long before they become apparent to others.
