In The World Is Curved, David Smick picks up where Thomas Friedman's The World Is Flat left off, taking readers on an insider's tour through the private offices of central bankers, finance ministers, and even prime ministers. He reveals how today's risky environment came to be and why the mortgage mess is a symptom of potentially far more devastating trouble. He wrestles with the two questions on everyone's mind: How bad could things really get in today's volatile economy? And what can we do about it? Confronting the ever-increasing challenges of globalism and the economic problems that plague the United States from a downward spiraling value of the dollar to the subprime mortgage crisis, Smick argues that the solution to the problem is deregulation and encouraging entrepreneurship.
