    Description

    A provocative look at how today's trade conflicts are caused by governments promoting the interests of elites at the expense of workers.

    Trade disputes are usually understood as conflicts between countries with competing national interests, but as Matthew C. Klein and Michael Pettis show in this book, they are often the unexpected result of domestic political choices to serve the interests of the rich at the expense of workers and ordinary retirees.

    Klein and Pettis trace the origins of today's trade wars to decisions made by politicians and business leaders in China, Europe, and the United States over the past 30 years. Across the world, the rich have prospered while workers can no longer afford to buy what they produce, have lost their jobs, or have been forced into higher levels of debt.

    In this thought-provoking challenge to mainstream views, the authors provide a cohesive narrative that shows how the class wars of rising inequality are a threat to the global economy and international peace-and what we can do about it.

    Narrator is robotic

    I think I'll buy this book as a hardcopy and give it another shot but Siri reads text with more intonation and emphasis . Completely impossible to listen to, I don't think a human read this. Listened to another book narrated by Bob Souer and this 1000% was not read by him. Don't do this audible it's terrible.

    Interesting prospective on global trade

    Thought provoking book, with an excellent history of global trade imbalances and interesting speculation on their causes. Conclusions about how to correct current imbalances challenge every day solutions, and should promote some good policy discussions. Highly recommend reading this.

    Speaking of class...

    Well-written, well-narrated. this book really made me think about inequality in our society today, and in particular about how I can't believe Jeff Bezos made so much money while Amazon workers contracted COVID-19 due to unsafe workplace policies with minimal hazard pay and were fired (and in some cases smeared and ruined) for organizing for dignified working conditions.

    sounds like it was narrated by machine

    I'm currently at the end of 3rd chapter and can say 2 things: 1. It's extremely boring to listen. The lifeless, monotonic narration sounds like machine. I wonder if Audible does refunds for computer generated narration, because that one sure sounds like one. 2. 3 chapters and it's still historical exposition, that is pretty strangely structured: it went to 20th century once, then it went back to the 17th, while repeating similar narration. Sounds like filler. So far not much argumentation.

    Worst narrator ever

    The Narrator rushes through the book as in a hurry, frequently breathing in loudly, and does not read with an understanding of what he reads, just rushing through chains of words. Horrible, I want my money back.
