9780006383826: The World in 2020: Power, Culture and Prosperity - A Vision of the Future

As the world's economies shift, some countries will succeed and some will fail. Understanding the reasons - and which countries will emerge as the most powerful over the next generation, affects all our futures. Drawing on research from Europe, Japan and America, and using analytical tools which reveal the potential for growth and social harmony in each country, the author discusses the following issues and describes his own vision of the future: why a country's success will depend as much on its people's good behaviour as on their skills; why culture rather than technology will determine which countries will have the cutting edge; why manufacturing will no longer be the key to economic success; how China will become the world's largest economy; why the US must overcome its law-and-order problems to survive; why Japan's rise will peak; why Europe will never become a superstate; and why there will be plenty of jobs but no jobs for life.
