Summary Description

Over the past few decades, globalization and Googlization have kicked off the first phase of an innovation revolution.  These developments have brought us such advances as the World Wide Web, social networking, 24/7 connectivity, and global markets.

But the benefits of all this progress have not been distributed evenly.  Even as rural women in Africa and Asia have seen their lives transformed by mobile phones and the Internet, the middle classes and blue-collar workers in prosperous countries have been squeezed by the new global realities. 

All this leads to the central political and economic question of our age:  How can the extraordinary benefits of the innovation revolution be shared more fully among all of humanity? 

In our summary of Need, Speed, and Greed, Vijay Vaitheeswaran answers that question, offering the essential insider’s guide to this new world of innovation. 

Vaitheeswaran is an award-winning global correspondent for the Economist.  He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, an adviser to the World Economic Forum, and an adjunct faculty member at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 

Need, Speed, and Greed will explain the new rules and skills you must develop to unleash your inner innovator and profit from the shifting global economic order.
