American superiority is deteriorating faster than you think. Powerful trends are converging to rapidly shift wealth and power to Asia-and, as acclaimed international trade expert Clyde Prestowitz shows, geopolitical clout will follow economic strength. Now we have to cope with the fallout. How will we deal with a world in which the dollar is no longer the dominant currency, the United States is no longer the dominant power, and people in Slovenia, Singapore, and Seattle are all competing for the same work on the same terms? Three Billion New Capitalists is a clear-eyed and profoundly unsettling look at America's and the world's economic future.

Review: Three Billion New Capitalists: The Great Shift of Wealth and Power to the East

User Review  - Jill - Goodreads

This book was written in 2004 and still has a lot of relevant information portaining to the current economic situation. He used a lot of interesting real life examples, but they were somewhat repetitive. Basically, China and India are going to take over the world for different reasons. Read full review
