International Bestseller “Quite simply the best guide to the global economy today. He shows how to read political headlines, black markets, the price of onions, and billionaire rankings as signals of booms, busts, and protests. Shsrma Failure of Globalism English Edition. Thinking, Fast and Slow English Edition. Life and Work English Edition. How Emotions Are Made: Whether you are an observer or an investor, you cannot afford to ignore it. Fareed Zakaria There is nothing theoretical or abstract about this work.

All of these views are not meant to be written in stone: Sharma believes long-term forecasting is a fool’s game. But for insights into the forces operating in our world today, The Rise and Fall of Nations is a stimulating and useful guide. The result is ambitious.

Breakout Nations | W. W. Norton & Company

Instead of pious statements about poverty, or portentous mutterings on the importance of American leadership, Mr Sharma sees the world from the ruthless and restless perspective of an investor He has a knack for sharp comparisons between countries.

If Mr Sharma is right that global capital flows will remain depressed, and that developing economies face a pedestrian future, then the hot money chasing them will recede-as, perhaps, will the influence of famous fund managers.

Until then, Mr Sharma’s book is a fine guide to the great emerging market boom and bust. The Economist Ruchir Sharma is a shrewd and thoughtful observer of emerging markets. His insights deserve the attention of all who care about the future of the global economy. Summers This efficient, positive guide for the practical observer and investor shows how to choose healthy emerging markets.

Evenhanded, measured, sage advice on the global economy. Highly recommended to all readers interested in global economics Sharma presents a wealth of data and insights into the economic condition of the post world Some of his conclusions may seem jarring but are always thought provoking. Library Journal Sharma’s wealth of knowledge Reuters For sheer readability and insight on the developing world drama, I dare say you won’t find a better choice.

Wall Street Journal A vital guide to the new economic order. It’s a new world, and investors are looking for a roadmap to help them capture whatever return they can.

Forces of Change in the Post-Crisis Worldprovides a guide. Sharma’s new book is ambitious in positing new rules that investors should take into consideration as they think about the growth prospect of all nations, developed and developing, in the coming economic era of bifurcation, political populism, growing inequality, and uncertain technological disruption.

One thing that sets Sharma’s take on the new world apart straight away: He isn’t making 20, 30 or 50 year predictions about who will fare well or poorly as many banks like Goldman Sachs, or consulting groups like McKinsey have lately been wont to do.

He points out sharply that even when all the economic vectors seem to be leading in a certain direction, unexpected human behaviour, usually in the form of political change, can shift everything in a heartbeat Rather he looks to help readers navigate this turbulent world with rules that can help them identify which countries might, over 5 to 10 year time horizons, rise, fall, or muddle through.


Rana Foroohar Time He writes interestingly and well. The nub of the book is Sharma offers a framework of 10 rules. The more of these rules countries achieve, the more they are likely to rise rather than fall.

It is a good approach The book is rich in example and anecdote, which lifts it above the usual airport business book. And it may just help you avoid picking losers. David Smith The Sunday Times.

De momento, no he encontrado nada decepcionante. As one of Mr. Sharma’s competitors an institutional EM managerI found his latest book to be spot on and immensely readable. He breaks down his rules of thumb for emerging market investing into simple language with many practical examples from his own experience. His book is similar to some of Mark Mobius’ books, but without the endless self promotion that made Mobius’ books difficult to read. I think anyone from a total investing novice to sophisticated institutional investor could pick this book up and learn something new.

He very correctly points out that politicians who start out on a promising, reform driven path — such as Putin in Russia, Edrogan in Turkey, and even Mugabe in Zimbabwe — tend to become corrupt and terrible for economic growth after ten years.

What’s great now often turns rotten over the long term; this is a theme which recurs in his book. The Kiss of Debt chapter is more relevant in the post-financial crisis environment.

While it seems common sense, Sharma’s research shows that countries in which debt grows at rates greatly exceeding GDP growth tend to experience a period of very low growth in subsequent years.

The most pertinent example today: However, there are some other less-recognized examples including Turkey. Sharma does a great job of integrating historical examples, statistics, and his own personal ground-level observations into a relatively succinct book. This was a great sequel to his Breakout Nations book and I hope he continues to publish his thoughts.

There are many strong points in this book and it is well worth reading for those interested in what makes a nation prosper. In a time when everyone wants to aid the Third World countries, it is useful to reflect on how the speculative and corrupt practices on Wall Street undid all the good that may have come from the foreign aid and assistance given to the undeveloped nations. Sharma explains, that if the boom had been moderated, and the bust avoided, the average incomes of the emerging nations would have soon caught up with those of the rich nations.

The ten factors that the author relies on to identify a growing economy are: Whether the size of the workforce is increasing; Is the geography favorable; Are there significant investment in factories; The amount of inflation; The Level of Debt; The number and nature of billionaires and corruption; whether the currency value is high or low; the degree of support vs interference by the government; the degree of income inequality; and the persistence of growth.

Korea, Taiwan, China, and Singapore. The others usually fall victim to swings between reform and populism with its excess regulation, wild spending, low investment, and corruption.

Indeed, America itself is becoming more subject to such destructive tendencies.

A weakness in both books is that there is little attention given to the importance of the nature and attitude of a people or their culture. Sharma mentions Israel in only two small paragraphs, acknowledging their transformation into a technical powerhouse over the last 40 years, but with brakout discussion of why that happened and persisted so long.

It is likely shrma some populations and cultures eboook less prone to swing into orgies of populism and the uncontrolled spending that creates the boom and bust scenarios which preclude extended rises in prosperity. The book provides much raw data on demographic trends and stresses the need for population growth.


With birth rates down in most of the established economies, he seems to favor immigration as the answer but makes no mention of good vs bad immigration.

There is no reference to immigration policies such as used in Norway, Israel, and Switzerland that restrict admission to desirable merit-based applicants. Similarly, the author stresses the need for a growing workforce but pays scant attention to the percentage of people in the workforce.

The shortage of workers is not just caused by birth rates, but also by the number of people dropping out of the workforce. Last month, the Congressional Budget Office projected that the American labor force participation rate will decline from about 63 percent in to around 58 percent in The report indicates that if the participation rate is 61 percent inthe resulting higher gross domestic product would lead to more revenues, higher interest rates, smaller budget deficits, and less federal debt.

But if the participation rate drops to 55 percent inthe resulting slower economic growth would create larger budget deficits and more debt.

Consideration of these variables, and their causes, would have helped provide useful solutions to our economic problems. I read books very much along this line partly because I am just interested in world comparisons and partly because I work in a high tech business where the supply lines are spread over numerous countries. I work in a technology group with 22 engineers and scientists and I’m the only one born in the USA and my colleagues often share some of their observations on regions of the world.

That said, I’ve read several books of a similar genre and this is the best of them. Mr Sharma shares lots of interesting facts with us which you can get a good sense of from the review by Mr Loyd E. The book has 11 chapters. Each of the first 10 discusses a subject of analysis that he performs on the various countries and he basically maps out how he thinks about each of these and gives some examples.


The methods are not difficult to understand and are very full of fairly practical wisdom. The 11th chapter he basically summarizes his feeling about the prospects of various countries over the next 5 years. He is careful to note that he’s only making projections for the next 5 years or so as things can change based upon world developments or leadership changes.

Although Ruchir’s focus is on emerging market countries there are plenty of statements made relating to G7 or G20 countries. You get a pretty good feeling for which areas of the world are likely to make real economic progress and which ones are nationw to slip.

The author provides a solid narrative on the findings of his research. I found the book very breakojt and well thought out. As this book shows, however, the realities of economic analysis are that everything pretty much comes down to statistics and probabilities. That is, given “x” circumstances there is “y” likelihood of “z” happening. The real world has many confounding factors that cannot be isolated in a simple manner.

Nonetheless, the author gives us insights into current world economic conditions and country near-term outlooks. My main criticism is based on the fact that I once wrote an essay in which one reviewer suggested I practice “economy of words.
