About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Robert Kaplan's best selling "Monsoon: The Indian Ocean and the Future of American Power" (published in 2011) detailed the geopolitical shift underway from being Atlantic Ocean centric to becoming Indian Ocean centric. Now, Ram Charan outlines another equally important shift - the great global economic shift from the North to South. These changes cannot be ignored. As economic power shifts political power does too.
Today's business leaders must rapidly gain an understanding the realities of today's global landscape:
1. The unmistakable truth - the world has tilted.
2. Wealth is moving from North to South.
3. A slowing global economy, global competition, and fast change.
4. Transfers of technology, know-how, and capital are now moving now North to South.
5. The South is driving change. The North is afraid of it.
Many business leaders in the North, blind to the magnitude of the trends, are accelerating the tilt by transferring their technology, brands, know-how, and real assets to the South, all in search for much higher growth.
Businesses anchored in these emerging economic centers are bursting onto the global stage.Read more ›
Opportunities in the North won't disappear, but firms remaining there will struggle for growth and still be vulnerable to inroads from those in the South. Those choosing to compete in the South will need leaders who can manage the entirely different business scenarios found in the North and South. Meanwhile, The U.S. runs annual $600+ billion trade deficits that already total about $8 trillion, associated decreased tax revenues and increased expenditures have also piled up a $14 trillion government deficit, with no end in sight.
The good news is that we are not in a zero-sum game - the Southern pie is expanding at an extraordinary rate.Read more ›
The title refers to the fact that, in Charan's words, "the world has tilted. Its economic center has shifted from what have traditionally been called the advanced or Western countries of the northern hemisphere to fast developing countries including China, India, Indonesia, Brazil, and others in the Middle East and even parts of Africa...Wealth is moving from North to South, and so are jobs...The South is driving change. The North is afraid of it...The world is in an inevitable transition to a more even distribution of opportunity and wealth...The global financial system, which h connects the economies of all countries every second of the day, is highly unstable...Many countries below the thirty-first parallel are creating their own rules of the road and executing their growth plans to win jobs and resources for their people...Companies are competing against countries - not just other companies.Read more ›
