Reeling from the brutal impacts of the early 21st-century recession, governments and societies everywhere are retrenching and pushing hard for increased protectionism. In this inspiring volume, global economy expert Pankaj Ghemawat details why, while this reaction is understandable, following a protectionist ideology to its fullest will only cause further irreparable harm to world economies. "[Ghemawat's] book contributes to fostering the mind-set that will enable us to reshape this world in a sustainable way."-Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize-winning economist

"Narrator Sean Pratt adopts an appropriately deliberate pace as he delivers economist Pankaj Ghemawat's premise that people around the world will suffer economic fallout in one way or another if the processes of globalization reverse in favor of protectionism. He offers plenty of statistics and examples to bolster his argument that the local rather than the global still predominates. While Pratt's slow pace aids the listening in digesting this dense book, he tends to lapse into a monotonous tone that makes for a laborious listen at times. S.E.G.
