The Elephant and the Dragon: The Rise of India and China and What It Means for All of Us

With labor now unbound from geographic borders, we're seeing startling shifts in how—and where—nearly everything we buy is made.

She also outlines how Americans—business leaders, workers, politicians, even parents—can understand the vast changes coming and thrive in this new age.
