The bestselling author of Dead Aid traces the decline of the western worldís economic supremacy and offers radical solutions.
Acclaimed author Dambisa Moyo gives a fresh insider's perspective on the erosion of Western power over the past 50 years. She examines how the West's flawed financial decisions and blinkered political and military choices have resulted in an economic recession and geopolitical seesaw that is now poised to favour emerging markets.
Formerly a consultant for the World Bank and an investment banker specializing in emerging markets at Goldman Sachs, Moyo is uniquely positioned to examine the errors of the US, Europe and Canada and the techniques the emerging countries used to rise on the global economic stage. How the West Was Lost reveals the myopia of the Western world but also the radical solutions that it needs to adopt in order to reassert itself as a global economic power and reverse the current economic crisis.
A media star, Moyo was featured in Oprah Winfrey's power list of 20 remarkable visionaries, and Time magazine named her as one of the world's 100 most influential people.
