Summary
  • "The J curve is a visual tool that allows us to see at a glance why some crucial countries are in crisis and unstable while others are prosperous and politically solid. In this playful and practical guide, Ian Bremmer, an expert on the politics of international business, turns conventional wisdom on its head. He reveals how the United States can begin more successfully to act in its own interests."
  • "But The J Curve is not only for policymakers and their critics. It can help investors better manage the risks they face abroad. It answers puzzling questions we all have. Why does North Korea seem to invite a military conflict it can't possibly survive? Why is India so surprisingly stable? What are the internal pressures eroding stability in Saudi Arabia? How long can China's politics resist the pressure for change provoked by the country's economic revolution? Why are Iran's ruling clerics trying to push their nation toward international isolation? What will happen to Israeli democracy when demographic pressures change the balance of political power within? And crucially, how should the United States respond to the challenges posed by these questions?" "Bremmer's tour of the nations of the world - our friends, our foes, and others in between - shows us how to see the world fresh, get rid of shopworn attitudes, and discover a new and useful way of thinking."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
Presents an analysis of how nations make business decisions and the way in which the U.S. can best act in its own interests, maintaining that the examples of Iraq and Cuba can inform us in our dealing with North Korea, China, and Saudi Arabia
