Global paradox : the bigger the world economy, the more powerful its smallest players by John Naisbitt( Book )

68 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in 11 languages and held by 2,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In two previous blockbuster international best-sellers, John Naisbitt comprehensively identified the major trends that have swept through every sector of our world in the last fifteen years: from the globalization of the economy to the surging impact of technological innovation to the renewed power of culture in our lives. Now we confront a new pulse of change, a Global Paradox that will surely transform our lives:. The larger the system, the smaller and more powerful and important the parts. Countries and companies are deconstructing into vital, smaller and smaller units. Multinational corporations are dramatically changing the way they do business or falling by the wayside. Empires are crumbling while looser economic alliances are on the rise. Nationalist movements in Quebec, Scotland, and throughout the former Soviet Bloc suddenly have a new, unprecedented vitality. In Global Paradox, John Naisbitt builds a powerful instrument of comprehension from this one profound and vital insight about the seemingly chaotic changes that appear to grip our world. The Paradox, as he sees it, is powered by the explosive developments in telecommunications which are the driving forces simultaneously creating the huge global economy and multiplying and empowering its parts. The Global Paradox is funded by the largest and fastest-growing industry in the world - tourism. Tourism is the face-to-face corollary of the communications revolution. Tourism creates infrastructures and can lift Third World economies; tourism incites our interest in other cultures and tribes - gives them validity, makes us want to visit them. The force shaking the foundations of huge economic and political structures is this same tribalism: The more universal we become, the more tribal we act. This tribalism will bring hundreds, perhaps thousands, of new countries into existence and will empower thousands of diverse, tribally affiliated groups. For the Global Paradox, China is the test case. Central economic planning got China nowhere. Now the individual entrepreneurs of China are swiftly moving in the direction of becoming the world's largest economy. Founded on these fundamental principles, Global Paradox offers a glimpse of the near-term future: the likely winners and losers in the global marketplace, the sectors of growth and stagnation in the world economy, the new rules that will soon determine standards of political and business behavior from Tokyo to New York to Sydney, to Santiago and Shanghai, to Kuala Lumpur and all points in between. Global Paradox is a noteworthy direction for John Naisbitt: a single conceptual breakthrough that applies a strikingly sharp vision to seemingly disparate trends in many areas of our lives. In the years and months to come, no informed reader can afford to ignore its awesome vision of the opportunities and challenges presented to nations, businesses, and individuals at millennium's end
Megatrends for women by Patricia Aburdene( Book )

36 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in 4 languages and held by 2,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From "good ole boy" politics to the medical establishment, from organized religion to professional sports, the women of the 1990s are challenging and overturning the male-dominated status quo, reintegrating female values and perspectives and recasting the social, political and economic megatrends of the day. In Megatrends for Women, Patricia Aburdene and John Naisbitt, the internationally respected social forecasters who gave us the number one bestsellers Megatrends and Megatrends 2000, now outline the ways women are transforming every sector of contemporary life. Drawing on a wealth of data on social change, they offer example after example of women making a difference as CEO's, athletes and political and spiritual leaders. The women's movement has reached "critical mass" say Aburdene and Naisbitt, the point at which a trend becomes a megatrend. There may be setbacks, but women's march toward equality will henceforth become unstoppable. Chapter by chapter Megatrends for Women documents the sweeping changes women need to be aware of to be empowered now and in the future:. A record number of women candidates are seeking political office; a woman will be president of the United States by 2004;. Women-owned businesses employ as many people as all the Fortune 500 companies put together;. From homelessness to the environment, from population control to drug abuse and crime, women are asserting a leadership role in finding the solutions to the most intractable social problems;. Women dominate in six of the seven most popular fitness activities; at the 1992 Winter Olympics, women won all five of the U.S. gold medals;. Forty to fifty million women will undergo menopause in the next two decades; as activists, they will revolutionize medicine's approach to breast cancer and heart disease;. Whether theologians, nuns or New Agers, women are transforming both religion and spirituality by rejecting the notion of a male divinity and embracing the archetype of the Great Goddess;. After decades of male domination, female designers are now assuming leadership roles in the fashion business;. Women's natural leadership style in business is today's progressive management model and widely endorsed by male business gurus;. The new relationship between the United States and the former Soviet Union shifts the focus from military to domestic matters, opening the way for women to lead in the New World Order. Megatrends for Women describes the state of the art of women today and offers a prescient look at the future as women assume leadership in the 21st Century
Megatrends Asia : eight Asian megatrends that are reshaping our world by John Naisbitt( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the major trends that herald this remarkable transformation are the shift from the primacy of nation-states to business networks, from export-led economies to consumer-driven economies, and from labor-intensive industries to high technology. Add to these the social changes evolving from increased individualism, rapid urbanization, and the emergence of women, and it becomes clear in which direction Asia is heading. But while it has been quick to adapt Western technologies, Naisbitt explains, Asia has rejected the Western political and social formulations that run counter to its own heritage and traditions. Asia is modernizing in "the Asian way."

34 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Naisbitt argues that American culture is in a, "confusing and distracted state where we both fear and worship technology, where we see technologies as toys and quick-fixes, and where we become obsessed with what is "real" and what is "fake"--Violent games children play to genetically-engineered animals to wether one can claim to have scaled Everest if supplemental oxygen was used."--Jacket
