About the Book

"Fresh for the 21st century, EMERGENCE offers an updated view of the breathtaking changes to the emerging market sphere. For readers with an interest in business and geopolitics, the book offers both harrowing and heartening tales of travels abroad and related lessons learned. They reveal novel perspectives that challenge everything we thought we knew about these budding economic powerhouses. This book will engage a wide range of readers, from the professional who wants to make an informed decision to the general reader who wants to know why the chopped garlic in her freezer comes from China. Dramatic changes abroad are happening much sooner than many of us expected, and you need to know why. EMERGENCE is the book you have to read to understand what will happen when the developed world and the emerging world become one. Each chapter of EMERGENCE begins with a personal visit to a country that models a different strength of the emerging markets sphere. This on-the-ground perspective mirrors the unending visits by international financiers before they plunk down cash in their chosen investments. With observations ranging from taxicab chats to dialogues with diplomats, the stories set the stage for a discussion on widespread structural market changes. Inspired by Jim Rogers' tales as an "Adventure Capitalist", this book brings the reader abroad to make palpable the vast changes occurring overseas. These personal observations are also backed up by reams of facts"--
