4.0 out of 5 stars The Lexus and the Olive Tree, 23 Dec. 2003
This review is from: The Lexus and the Olive Tree (Paperback)
I found this to be a compelling and insightful read. Yes, much of the discussion is based on anecdote and conversations that the author has had throughout his career but I found this to be the most valuable aspect. He shows Globalisation to be what it really is, the unstoppable movement of the global herd - basically comprised of a group of disparate people connected through one huge market.
The best part of the book though has to be the conclusions that the author draws - that there is no one group/organisation that can be held responsible for 'globalisation', that this is the best wealth creating system that we have come up with but that we must better seek to reduce the impact on the least enfranchised in society if we are to continue along this path. Very timely bearing in mind current, and continuing, world events.
I highly recommend you take a look.
