The World Is Curved

David M. Smick, Author, Jim Bond, Read by , read by Jim Bond. Brilliance Audio $29.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-4233-7710-8

Confronting the ever-increasing challenges of globalism and the economic problems plaguing the U.S. from a downward spiraling value of the dollar to the subprime mortgage crisis, Smick argues again and again that the solution to the problem is deregulation and encouraging entrepreneurship. While he examines the U.S. in relation to other emerging and potentially powerful markets (China and India, in particular), Smick argues weakly against Thomas Friedman’s more utopian or opportunistic points of view. Jim Bond delivers the book in an accessible and gentle tone. Smick’s prose can be a bit inundating, but Bond balances speed with emphasis to keep listeners’ attention. A Portfolio hardcover (reviewed online). (Sept.)
