NZ Review This is the most comprehensive assessment of the global economy that I've seen and is a must-read for any business, economic, or governmental-related leader . Jeff M. Fettig, Chairman & CEO, Whirlpool Corporation A fascinating account of the causal factors of the meltdown and what we can do to avoid repetition. Sanjay Khosla, Executive Vice President and President, International for Kraft Foods This book combines brilliant analysis and strategic insight with a clear message: Companies that want to play a role in tomorrow's markets must act immediately. There's no place for complacency. The opportunities in the post-crisis world are good--and better than many might think. Dr. Jurgen Hambrecht, CEO, BASF The lessons from companies that came out winners during past recessions are invaluable in the current context. Rhodes and Stelter strike a welcome note of optimism in today's tough times by showing that companies can do a lot to thrive when the global economy is struggling. Dr. Dieter Zetsche, CEO, Daimler There are great lessons for today's chief executives: well-managed companies can prosper in the downturn and accelerate faster than their competitors in the upturn.
