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.

Advance Praise for Three Billion New Capitalists
"Clyde Prestowitz understands what is driving the new wave of globalization better than anyone. He also sees the unparalleled opportunities and the enormous challenges clearly. To understand the future you must read this book." - Fred Smith, CEO, FedEx Corporation
"Clyde Prestowitz's new book is a winner! He zeros in on the emergence of market economies in China, India, and the former Warsaw Pact nations. He makes a compelling argument that this is the most important new force shaping the world today. This book should provide the incentive for government and business leaders to reshape their strategies to deal with this dramatic force." - William J. Perry, 19th Secretary of Defense
"Globalization is not what you think it is--a seamless integration of the global economy and world financial markets. The Chinas and Indias of the world challenge those of us in the West to rethink the standard US-centric framework of globalization. Prestowitz gets it -- and provides a long overdue wake-up call that urges us to consider a very different world order." - Stephen Roach, Chief Economist, Morgan Stanley
"Clyde Prestowitz gets it: America faces a changed world of great opportunity and great challenge. This book is a wake-up call for everyone who thinks we can cruise into the future without making major policy changes to sustain our competitiveness." - Craig Barrett, CEO, Intel
"Clyde Prestowitz spells out how America's current economic, fiscal and trade policies are leading toward a new global economy where China and India rule and the U.S. lags far behind. This is a sobering warning that should be read - and remembered - by anyone who cares about America's economic future." - Richard J. Durbin, Assistant Democratic Leader, United States Senate
"Clyde Prestowitz has done it again. Usually, a book following a successful one is a letdown. Not this time. Prestowitz focuses our minds on the rise of Asia in the context of globalization and the new IT technologies, and argues that the time has come for the United States to rethink its strategic economic options. This is a thoughtful, thought-provoking book that must be read." -Jagdish Bhagwati, author of In Defense of Globalization
"A provocative read that is sure to spark much-needed discussion and debate among business leaders, policymakers and economists about globalization and the impact it has on the sustainability of the American dream." -J.T. Battenberg III, Chairman and CEO, Delphi Corp.
"Clyde Prestowitz has always been ahead of the curve in understanding and explaining the trends that shape our global economy. In Three Billion New Capitalists, he once again combines lively and interesting explanations with lucid and even prescient analysis." - Hernando de Soto, author of The Mystery of Capital and The Other Path
"In his provocative and thoughtful analysis, Clyde Prestowitz lays out in rapid-fire succession the unique forces that are reshaping the global economy, and the failure of the United States to grasp that its relative economic superiority, competitiveness and power are slipping away. In the candor for which he has become justly famous, Prestowitz takes the facts, however uncomfortable, and connects the dots to compel only one conclusion-that the United States' position in the world is neither birthright nor immutable, and absent concrete policy reform, our economic dominance and global influence are in genuine peril." - Ambassador Charlene Barshefsky, former U.S. Trade Representative
"Once again, Clyde Prestowitz is the canary in America's economic coal mine. We ignore his counsel at our peril." - Senator Jeff BingamanAbout the Author:
Clyde Prestowitz is President of the Economic Strategy Institute in Washington, D.C., and is the author of Trading Places and Rogue Nation. He lives in Potomac, Maryland.
