The Age of Turbulence. Adventures in a New World | Pro qm

The Age of Turbulence. Adventures in a New World | Pro qm | Books for ideas | Scoop.it

"Alan Greenspan shares the story of his life first simply with an eye toward doing justice to the extraordinary amount of history he has experienced and shaped. But his other goal is to draw readers along the same learning curve he followed, so they accrue a grasp of his own understanding of the underlying dynamics that drive world events. In the second half of the book, having brought us to the present and armed us with the conceptual tools to follow him forward, Dr. Greenspan embarks on a magnificent tour de horizon of the global economy. He reveals the universals of economic growth, delves into the specific facts on the ground in each of the major countries and regions of the world, and explains what the trend-lines of globalization are from here. The distillation of a life's worth of wisdom and insight into an elegant expression of a coherent worldview, The Age of Turbulence will stand as Alan Greenspan's personal and intellectual legacy."

Si vous aimez comprendre les mécanismes qui régissent l'industrie de la culture, cette enquête est pour vous. Exceptionnelle, très objective et très documenté."

 

"De Rio à Bollywood, de Miami à Paris, du Caire à Hong Kong, on dénoue les enjeux politiques, les volontés cachées ou affichées derrière la diffusion des contenus. On apprend comment les réseaux se mettent en place, pourquoi un best-seller supposé américain est finalement le fait d’un groupe allemand et comment, parfois, le cinéma indépendant peut finalement être financé par les grosses maisons de production. Une enquête très dense, très documentée et époustouflante. A lire pour comprendre un peu mieux les dessous de cette industrie !"

"The World Is Flat is Thomas L. Friedman's account of the great changes taking place in our time, as lightning-swift advances in technology and communications put people all over the globe in touch as never before-creating an explosion of wealth in India and China, and challenging the rest of us to run even faster just to stay in place. This updated and expanded edition features more than a hundred pages of fresh reporting and commentary, drawn from Friedman's travels around the world and across the American heartland-from anyplace where the flattening of the world is being felt."
