STANDING ON THE SUN: How the Explosion of Capitalism Abroad Will Change Business Everywhere

For half a century the US has sat at the center of the global economic system, and Western-style capitalism has dominated.  Now, it's no secret that the center of gravity is shifting. The advanced economies that in 2000 consumed 75% of the world's output will, by 2050, consume just 32%. Meanwhile, the emerging economies of the world--Brazil, India, China, and others--will surge forward. As these fast-growing, low-income economies mature, will they adopt the practices of the old guard?  Or will they make their own way, and create the next prevailing version of capitalism?  What new opportunities will that create for firms around the world? Standing on the Sun tackles these questions with fresh ideas and provocative examples. 

Antidote to Pessimism of a Post-Modern World

[T]he prospect that innovation, collaboration and social value will take the place of “mutually assured consumption” is attractive. The book makes a strong case that many companies are already heading in that direction. Sometimes it seems as though the strongest defence of capitalism is the stifling, circular argument that it is the best of a bad set of options. This book is a well-timed, well-written antidote to such post-crisis pessimism.  Read more

IT'S ALIVE: The Coming Convergence of Information, Biology, and Business

Why we are on the cusp of a new economic era that will make the changes and challenges of the Information Era seem like child’s play. From the bestselling authors of Blur—a defining book of the Information Age—comes a startling glimpse into the near future and the emerging economy that awaits us. It’s Alive foretells the jolt the world is about to receive as the science of molecular evolution races out of the laboratories and into the business world.

In this provocative book, leading business thinkers Stan Davis and Christopher Meyer offer a compelling picture of Future Wealth. They describe a world in the not-so-distant future in which everything of value--including human capital, talent, and other intangibles--will come to be traded in efficient finance markets. 

Future Wealth offers a mind-stretching look at how an efficient, transparent, Internet-connected economy could work. It helps you see how the unthinkable might actually be possible.

BLUR: The Speed of Change in the Connected Economy

Welcome to the new economy - a world where the rate of change is so fast it's only a blur, where the clear lines distinguishing buyer from seller, product from service, employee from entrepreneur are disappearing. To profit from these revolutionary patterns of business, you need a dynamic guide to the new economy.

BLUR is not another book about technology, but a comprehensive account of how the economy will change and how technology changes create new markets.  Davis and Meyer provide original insights into the radical implications for the way we make decisions—about strategy, investments, products, and people.
