Why The New World Disorder Constantly Surprises Us And What We Can Do About It. From an interview with the author: It's an age in which constant surprise--for good or for ill--has become a fact of life and in which our old ideas about how to make the world safer and more stable are actually making it more dangerous and unstable. What matters is that we all do three things: first we have to live lives that are very resilient, which means taking care of our selves, our savings, our family and our education so we can adjust to a rapidly changing world. Second, we all have to participate in a caring economy, devoting some of our life to helping others instead of relying on the government to help others for us. And finally we have to be innovative in how we live and think. We have to try to think of new ways to make a difference in the world as individuals, to help prepare our children to manage and control their own lives instead of relying on big corporations or the government to do so.
"A great read, a wondrous and unexpected journey through a world that keeps getting more complicated. Joshua Cooper Ramo has a brilliant mind and a beautiful pen, and both are evident in this stimulating book." -- Fareed Zakaria, author of "The Post-American World"
