Staff Picks: New Excerpt - The Elephant and the Dragon

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:21 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

There's a new excerpt up on our Excerpts blog. It's from The Elephant and the Dragon: The Rise of India and China and What it Means for All of Us. There are many books on China and India out these days, but The Elephant and the Dragon focuses specifically on the predictions and fears about the global impacts of these emerging superpowers. Author Robyn Meredith stresses understanding these nations before anything else. Because by understanding how China and India are reshaping the global economy, the rest of the world can learn how to adjust to a new and exciting--and sometimes scary--new era.
From the introduction:
This is the story of how India and China are changing their destinies and, with that, changing the world's. As they move from the ranks of developing-world countries toward superpower status, India's slow-but-steady approach contrasts with China's rocketlike rise.
