Uprising: Will emerging markets shape or shake the world economy?
George Magnus’s Uprising looks at the the world economy in the wake of the most destructive financial crisis since the 1930s and asks if the consensus view about the shift in global power to emerging markets generally, and to China particularly is as robust as it thinks it is. Magnus, a renowned economist, credited with predicting the financial crisis in early 2007, is Senior Economic Adviser at UBS and a frequent contributor to the Financial Times, BBC, Bloomberg, CNBC and other media outlets. In Uprising, he explains the effects that the financial crisis is having on the major emerging markets, and why they will be as challenged and threatened as their richer, Western partners.
