Economics is business, and politics is power. In this insightful book, David Reisman explores the interaction between authority and exchange in a global village where individual nation states – once the pinnacle of political organisation – increasingly depend on each other for their material well-being. Taking a transnational and impartial perspective, the author builds a comprehensive and intricate narrative. He dissects the emergence of the contemporary global economy and explains its impact on the sovereignty and strength of nations. Reisman explores the ways in which liberals, socialists and nationalists can reach a viable consensus in a new social order where the national interest must be the global interest as well.
