From the Back Cover:

The triumph of globalization--and what it really means

"It's not just the start of a new century. It's the beginning of a seminal change in society, culture, and politics, and Peter Marber gives us the blueprint. Money Changes Everything should be considered essential reading." --Michele Mitchell, CNN political correspondent and author of The Latest Bombshell: A Novel

"This book is about something we all know intuitively: that money does change everything, from politics to family life to culture--here, there, and everywhere. But Peter Marber brings this important point home in entertaining and enlightening ways with his lively prose and provocative insights into the ever-changing nature of 21st century politics and economics."
--Paul Blustein, Gerald Loeb Award-winning financial journalist and
author of The Chastening: Inside the Crisis That Rocked the Global Financial System and Humbled the IMF

"Money Changes Everything is superb. Evenhanded, fair-minded, with a coherent and well-developed thesis. At last, an honest approach to what is self-evident, at least to the Have-nots. . . . I especially like the writing. It's punchy, personal, and to the point. No jargon, no econ mumbo-jumbo, no hiding behind voodoo. . . . The book is scholarly without being academic, profound without being polemical."
--James B. Twitchell, Professor, University of Florida and author of Living It Up: Our Love Affair with Luxury

The debate on globalization is over. Globalization has won, and it's working. In Money Changes Everything, leading global money manager Peter Marber presents incontrovertible proof that new prosperity is spreading worldwide. Marber shows how this widening wealth is transforming everything it touches: culture, religion, family life, politics, education, leisure, the environment, and much more. These are the deepest and most rapid changes in human history. They will affect you profoundly. Money Changes Everything reveals what to expect in your own life--and how to profit from this unprecedented age of global wealth.

While others debate or wring their hands, globalization has triumphed--and it's delivering unprecedented social and economic wealth to billions of people. Money Changes Everything illuminates the twin movements that are transforming human needs and values worldwide: the industrialization of developing countries via globalization and the transition of advanced societies into a post-industrial phase.

Peter Marber proves once and for all that globalization is not only improving life expectancy, literacy, and education rates, but also extending leisure time and delivering a broad new prosperity to most people and most societies. He focuses on the profound implications of these changes to human society as new material and experiential desires increasingly replace the fight for survival. Marber considers radical changes in what people value and want, how they govern themselves, the roles of women, families, and religion, and the environmental impacts of worldwide prosperity. In so doing, he illuminates the most profound changes in human history--and shows what they'll mean in our own lives and businesses.
