China, India and the Rise and Fall of the West

Description

Polarshift is a thought provoking book which will change the way you see the past and the profound changes that are occurring in the present. 
Using a unique long term historical perspective considering events from the time of Genghiz Khan until now, Dr Matt Buttsworth analyzes what factors led to the rise of the West, what factors have led to its fall, and what factors are now propelling the nations of the East - China, India and the Dragon States - to world economic and technological leadership and what this means for the future of the world.
This book considers the fundamental questions of why did the scientific and industrial revolutions occur in the West and not in the civilizations of China, India and the Islamic world? What factors enable a scientific/industrial revolution to occur? Why is the West now falling behind in this global scientific and economic race? And why are the once great nations of China and India now returning to their long held position of being world economic, technological and scientific leaders?
This is a very thought altering, wide-ranging book which everyone who is interested in the profound polarshifts in world economic and technological power that are occurring today must read.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 05, 2011 – In this important book, which deserves to be widely read and debated, political economists Chinn (The Economic Integration of Greater China) and Frieden (Global Capitalism) argue that the 2007-2009 world financial crisis was made in America, because the U.S. ignored advice about indebtedness that it had given to other countries over the years. The time has now come for Americans to accept the implications of this situation and discuss it with other governments. In Chinn and Frieden's view, it is not debt per se, but what the debt is used for, that is key. They provide historical evidence to support their claim that if debt is invested by the government and private industry to raise profitability, then it is not problematic. This has not been the case in the recent past. Instead debt was used to create a speculative bubble, which led to what the authors call the bankruptcy of the financial system. They make the powerful case that the $12 trillion bail-out of the busted banks has been wasted. Absent a multi-trillion employment and investment program, there are very tough times ahead.
