Author Name:- Ruchir Sharma

Shaped by his 25 years traveling the world and vivify by his encounters with presidents, tycoons and villagers from Rio to Beijing, Ruchir’s new book rethinks the dismal science of economics as a practical art, based not just on crunching numbers but on live observation. He shows us how to understand the political headlines, the price of onions and popular news magazine covers as signs of coming booms, protests, and busts. Parsing the complicated flood of data on debt,capital flows, and trade Ruchir explains exactly which numbers are most telling for a nation’s fortunes and when they signal a turn for the worse or better.

In our post-crisis age that has turned the world on its head and ended a decade of supercharged growth, hype for globalization with fear of deglobalization and replacing political calm with revolt, Sharma’s pioneering book, The Rise and Fall of Nations serves as a highly readable field guide to understanding change not only in this new era, but in any era. It is written for any practical person – business executive, newspaper reader, politician or investor – interested in a new economics focused on what is coming next, not on the past. There is a saying that to know the road ahead, ask those coming back. On this road, Sharma is the one who has been there ahead of us.
