REVIEWS

I really enjoyed reading it! Peter Walker has done a wonderful job in laying out the cultural, philosophical and historical foundations for both countries and comparing them side by side.

Catherine Mengyun Yang, TIE-SEI Fellow, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University

The timing of writing on this subject is perfect and the approach that Peter Walker takes in comparing the two cultures/histories is very enlightening … An important read.

Claude Dussault, Chairman, Intact Financial Corporation

Peter Walker has written a brilliant book about China and America. Walker’s accurate descriptions of the differences in ‘worldview between the US and China are exactly what the US needs to understand China and for China to better understand the US.

The New Local Economy

Apple, Starbucks, Zara, McDonald’s – these are some of the brands and companies that are at the forefront of today’s global economy. They are embedded in virtually every city and town. But when the global economy goes wrong (as in 2008), it can leave local communities vulnerable in the form of unemployment and bankruptcy.

This forward-looking book argues for the creation of local economies as a means of resisting the seismic changes that globalization often brings, especially in times of crisis. Moreover, research shows that for every £100 spent in a local shop, 45% will remain in the community (compared with only 15% if spent in retail chains such as Tesco or Aldi). As part of the design of the future, Elmark argues for the need to break up the global economy into local economies, so that communities can regain their independence and be less exposed to the tide of globalization.

The Other Half

We live in a world that is unequal by nature. One could even say that its diversity is essential to all the world’s survival. However, inequality among human beings is one of society’s biggest problems.

This book is about opportunities. It is about being at the forefront of a paradigm change and a win-win situation. And it is about leading one of the most compelling and exciting shifts in our society: women’s empowerment. Company leaders are used to dealing with radical changes in markets, but there is a story that corporations all over the globe have chosen to ignore. This story is the sum total of millions of lost opportunities, because over half the potential workforce was left behind. Although half the population is made up of women, only 50% of them can earn a decent living. The Other Halfsets out to change just that.

The Green Bubble

The fact is, we are hopelessly addicted to energy. It is the thin glue that holds our civilized world together and life without it would be unthinkable.

Per Wimmer, Owner of Wimmer Financial, Wimmer Family Office and WimmerSpace.com, is releasing his book The Green Bubble this November. The Green Bubble offers an analysis of the current financial bubble being created in the energy sector, by governments subsidizing renewable energy investment. He argues that these investments are not sustainable, and makes a case for investment in gas and, controversially, nuclear power.

Alongside the pressure to reduce greenhouse emissions, there is a challenge to find new, renewable energy sources. Many of the current ideas, Wimmer argues, are politically driven. The book also offers an engaging and intelligent analysis of the different energy issues that the world is facing, and how politics has led us in the wrong direction.
