Political, Structural & Technological Change

This book focuses on the important turning points in global economic, financial, and political relations. It takes as a reference such major geo-economic shifts as the Arab Oil Embargo, the rise of leveraged finance, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the rise of venture capital, and the internet economy as outcomes of the changing system of global relations. This book highlights the "big picture" approach to understanding how the global economic and financial system operates. Contents include: Ending of the Cold War; Business and the Economy Under Pressure; and The Balkans Wars.
