Picking up where Thomas Friedman's "The World Is Flat" leaves off, "The World Is Curved" takes listeners on an insider's tour through the private offices of central bankers, finance ministers, and even prime ministers to reveal how today's risky environment came to be and why the mortgage mess is a symptom of potentially far more devastating trouble.

Professional reviews

"Jim Bond is a calm interpreter of this prescient analysis of how global economic forces will impact American life. With impressive phrasing, nuances, and energy variations, he makes this audio sound appealing without competing with the flow of ideas. He is one of the best voice pros we have for analytical writing like this. This terrifying book outlines the reasons for the 2007-2008 mortgage crisis and actually predicted with stunning clarity the October stock market meltdown. The articulate author, an international economist and presidential advisor, gives often-contrarian explanations of what suppresses creative capital allocation and how tax policy and class warfare force business overseas. His practical language and logical organization make these ideas accessible to a wide range of consumers, businesspeople, and policymakers. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
