Editorial Reviews

Review

Milton Ezrati, fantastically well-versed in international finance, has a rare gift for explaining complex economic trends in clear and compelling prose. In Thirty Tomorrows he brings his formidable knowledge to bear on one of the greatest challenges facing America and Europe. He shows that aging populations need not spell doom for economic growth. His fascinating study does not form simply important but vital reading. (Jacob Heilbrunn, Editor, The National Interest)

A bold assessment of what population aging and globalization will mean to the way we work, organize production, and accumulate knowledge and wealth in the 21st century (Dr. Isaac Ehrlich, Chair of the Department of Economics at SUNY Buffalo and Editor-in-Chief, The Journal of Human Capital)

Ezrati offers a smart, readable synthesis…his panoramic, balanced perspective provides valuable insights into economic challenges ahead. (Publishers Weekly)

"Ezrati provides useful insights into how programs should be structured to have meaningful results." -CPA Magazine

Praise for Kawari:

A timely and thoughtful analysis. (Michael H. Armacost, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan)

A rattling good read. (Brian Reading, author of Japan: The Coming Collapse)

Ezrati is bolder and more speculative. (Foreign Affairs)

A thought-provoking look at what might be in store. (San Jose Mercury News)

While this book is a good overview of the issues, I came away with both positive and negative feelings.

First the positive. It is an easily read summary of globalization issues. It will, if nothing else, raise your awareness of the importance of issues frequently seen in the media these days. If you are looking for a high level introduction, then this is the book for you.

Now the negative. The material seems to have been written around 2008/2009, even though the copyright is 2014. The vast majority of the quoted statistics are from 2008/2009 as indicated by the footnotes in the back of the book. That said, the book is wonderfully footnoted, and the "stale" statistics don't diminish the validity of the basic points.

I felt some topics that have arisen since 2008/2009 were missing, or only mentioned in passing; for example, in the chapter on China, no mention is made of the potential credit bubble (shadow banking system), housing bubble, or pollution issues. Other topics that could have been discussed better or were missing include Abenomics, central bank QE, climatic impacts like water scarcity, and corruption/ease-of-doing-business concerns. Also missing was a discussion of Africa and the future impact of its huge building wave of youthful workers.

Thirty Tomorrows does for demographics what Friedman's "The World is Flat" did for globalization. Ezrati's analysis and perspective bring understanding to a phenomenon that has long-lasting social and investment consequences. The book presents a great baseline of the problems demographics will create, proposes both possible and probable solutions and the political, economic and social costs of those solutions. An empowering read.`

I would recommend this book to every Gen X-er. Milton talks about a lot about much that is in the media these days. But more importantly, he talks about how the economy is going to change, where the jobs will be and where they won’t be. It will help anybody chart their professional course.

This book is like being given a lantern on the future. Ezrati illuminates the pressing issues currently facing in particular the United States, and with clarity he offers a nonpartisan perspective on demographics and globalization and how they will affect the nation for decades to come. Anyone with a concerned interest in the well-being of our country would be better informed by reading "Thirty Tomorrows."

I saw Ezrati speak recently, and he brought order to what had been much confusion about the investment outlook. With this book, he has taken a complicated, opaque subject and made it clear and understandable. The treatment here proves yet again that there are always opportunities in challenges, in this case from aging demographics.

This book covers the waterfront, showing how everything is connected to everything else, aging demographics, women’s issues, new attitudes toward work and career, pay policies, the structure of the workplace, immigration policy, training, education, innovation. As I say, it covers the waterfront. It even carries things into how emerging economies will change and how the United States can provide global leadership. Amazingly it does all this in a readable way with no annoying technical jargon. He also sticks to reasoning and fact and avoids ideology. I learned a whole lot. I would recommend it to anyone interested in where this country’s economy and others are going.
