The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations?
By Ian Bremmer
A number of authoritarian governments, drawn to the economic power of capitalism but wary of uncontrolled free markets, have invented something new: state capitalism. In this system, governments use markets to create wealth that can be directed as political officials see fit. As an expert on the intersection between economics and politics, Ian Bremmer is uniquely qualified to illustrate the rise of state capitalism and its long-term threat to the global economy. The main characters in this story are the men who rule China, Russia, and the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf, but their successes are attracting imitators across much of the developing world. This guide to the next big trend includes useful insights for investors, business leaders, policymakers, and anyone else who wants to understand major emerging changes in international politics and the global economy.
EXCERPTS: Every Nation for Itself, An Excerpt
Posted April 30, 2012, 9:01 PM with category of Management & Workplace CultureOne of the real stand-out successes in business books of 2010 was Ian Bremmer's The End of the Free Market.

His previous book, The J Curve: A New Way to Understand Why Nations Rise and Fall was a critical success, selected by The Economist as one of the best books of 2006, and got him on some of the cable talk shows, but The End of the Free Market turned into a national bestseller.

Posted August 9, 2010, 5:23 PM with category of Publishing IndustryThe longlist for The Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year was announced this morning.

He is doing so because "a number of books on this year’s longlist address various aspects of the financial crisis," a crisis Blankfein was intimately involved in as CEO of Goldman Sachs. Read more
