About the Author

Global Edge is a celebration of clear, quantitative thinking...something that is noticeably lacking in the academic and business discussions around transparency and global risk. Most of the experts and virtually all of the literature dealing with transparency and corruption tend toward the "softer side" of sense making...too much evangelization and not enough fact based discourse.
This is not a new problem. Anyone who has pursued formal research is familiar with the old axiom: "If you can measure it, it probably isn't worth the trouble." This is an exception to that rule, in that Kurtzman and Yago identify and measure risks that may, indeed, make a substantial impact on the bottom line.
Does it provide all the answers? No....but it goes a long way toward giving the reader a fact-based and context driven understanding of global risk.
Don't leave your home(or plan a new venture into a 3rd world country) without it.
