Summary: What's the most powerful, dynamic, and irresistible force at work in the 2lst-century economy? If you said globalization, millions of people agree with you - and all of you might be wrong. In Against the Dead Hand, Brink Lindsey looks at the realities of globalization and concludes that the genie is not yet out of the bottle. Against the Dead Hand traces the rise and fall of the central-planning ideologies that dominated the 20th century, from the extreme of Soviet C ...show moreommunism to social democracy in the West to the protectionism seen virtually everywhere. It reveals the remarkable extent to which the "dead hand" of the old collectivist dream still shapes the contours of today's world economy, and it explains the complex political and economic dynamics that drive globalization forward in spite of the obstacles. This book combines historical perspective and analytical insight with incisive and colorful reporting from the world's current economic trouble spots. Lindsey's rich and nuanced portrait of globalization provides invaluable guidance for investors, entrepreneurs, and corporate managers who must contend with the uncertainty and volatility that now roils the world economy. ...show less

Globalization: it's earlier than you think. That's the provocative message of Against the Dead Hand, which traces the rise and fall of the century-long dream of central planning and top-down control and its impact on globalization-revealing the extent to which the "dead hand" of the old collectivist dream still shapes the contours of today's world economy. Mixing historical narrative, thought-provoking arguments, and on-the-scene reporting and interviews, Brink Lindsey shows how the economy has grown up amidst the wreckage of the old regime-detailing how that wreckage constrains the present and obscures the future. He conveys a clearer picture of globalization's current state than the current conventional wisdom, providing a framework for anticipating the future direction of the world economy. ...show less
