Globalization is driven by various new development and gradual changes in the world economy. Generally, organizations go global for expanding their markets and increasing their sales and profits. One of the major forces of globalization is the expansion of communication systems.

Whilst there are many factors that have contributed to globalisation, it is the actions of businesses that have done most to accelerate the process in recent years. Influential commentator Hamish McRae has stated that businesses are the “main driver” of globalisation.
It renders the most vivid portrait to date of the global elites, such as Larry Summers, George Soros, Christine Lagarde, Jamie Dimon and other high-profile bank CEOs, fund managers, and policy makers who, through their interlocking relationships and collective influence transform our increasingly fragile financial, economic and political systems.
Indeed, superhubs and their networks are one of the main reasons for the incipient global revolt, which may eventually change the existing world order. Navidi skillfully applies network science to the global financial system and the human networks that underpin it.
Not only is it a fascinating description of the power wielded by elite networks over the financial sector, it is also a meditation on the consequences of this system for the economy and the society.
By whom and how? These are the classic questions to which globalization and the financial markets have given a new urgency.
The style is so engaging, a real page turner, that I finished it in one non-stop session. Unlike many, she does not see the global economy as a predictable machine in the competent hands of policymakers, but rather as a complex, adaptive system prone to catastrophic breakdowns and rising inequality.
The values of these people, the networks they maintain, and their resistance to constructive change are crucial components threatening the future stability of the economy and even our democratic political systems. By identifying these systemic problems, Navidi brings us one step closer to appropriate solutions.
She illustrates its structures, interconnections, and inner workings with great expertise and consistent logic. Her analysis is balanced. She critically examines the implications of the increasing interconnections of decision-makers in the financial system and their concentration of power.
Of particular benefit is that the book is easy to understand, making it also enjoyable to readers without any prior knowledge. Numerous references allow for further immersion. She highlights the linkages between key elements of change, which—if well managed and coordinated—can be powerful drivers for growth, and profitability.
It is a must-read for all who are striving for growth and excellence! She has a unique set of perceptions of how certain elements of that world work.
She describes examples taken from meetings in Switzerland at the World Economic Forum and traces relationships and their network effects on a broader basis. She draws many useful conclusions and provides terrific portraits of some of the major players in finance today.
With vivid narratives and systems thinking, Sandra Navidi effortlessly connects the dots between people, institutions and events. Her conclusions demonstrate the systemic pitfalls and potential improvements.
I highly recommend this fun and very useful book! Navidi helps us understand the mechanisms that drive our global financial system by ultimately telling a human story of how a select few wield incredible financial and political power.
It is as rich in its narrative as it is in its corroborating research. Who are the captains of global society, and how did they earn this privilege? Though brainpower and personalities are important, Navidi shows how the networks they have developed are crucial.
It makes for a tremendously informative and entertaining read.
If you want to understand how our world works, this book is for you. And here they are, described with clarity, pity, horror, and sympathy by a woman who gained their confidence, traveled the globe as part of their inner circles, offered them counsel, and—after this book—will be remembered as the woman who revealed how they maintain their plutocracy.
The need for political action to save banks in the crisis ofmade clear that the financial system is not just a private sector but also a common good. It is this focus on the common good and the wellbeing of ordinary people that has to be considered in capitalism in general and in the financial sector in particular.
This book will empower readers to advocate for change. Navidi describes vividly and without taboos how the financial elite have created their own cosmos and why it is about time we scrutinize the rules upon which this system is based.The OECD-IDB Latin American Competition Forum takes place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on September Discussions will focus on the informal economy in the region, industrial policy and the promotion of domestic industry and competition law and policy in Peru.
