Against the Dead Hand
Brink Lindsey
Price: $ 29.95

Globalization: it¿s earlier than you think. That¿s the provocative message of Against the Dead Hand, which traces the rise and fall of the century-long dream of central planning and top-down control and its impact on globalization¿revealing the extent to which the "dead hand" of the old collectivist dream still shapes the contours of today¿s world economy. Mixing historical narrative, thought-provoking arguments, and on-the-scene reporting and interviews, Brink Lindsey shows how the economy has grown up amidst the wreckage of the old regime¿detailing how that wreckage constrains the present and obscures the future. He conveys a clearer picture of globalization¿s current state than the current conventional wisdom, providing a framework for anticipating the future direction of the world economy.
