This apparent contradiction is at work in both business and politics, he says. To survive, big companies today are decentralizing and restructuring. Many have discovered the increased efficiency and effectiveness of lateral rather than vertical organization — networks of autonomous units rather than formal hierarchies.

Similarly, as the world economy gets larger, the component nation players become smaller and smaller. By way of example, Naisbitt describes the political and economic imperatives underlying the break-up of the former Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia, as well as the push for national sovereignty that has characterized such states as Andorra. While economic and technological forces have weakened the traditional nation-state, he maintains that they have strengthened, not separated people from, longstanding identities of language, culture, religion, and ethnic heritage.

Paradoxically, "the bonding commonality of human beings is our distinctiveness. Telecommunications are the driving force that is simultaneously creating the new world economy and making its parts more and more powerful. We are moving in telecommunications to a single worldwide network of information networks, with everything linked to everything else, he remarks. This change has important consequences for democracy worldwide — it can be likened to the shift from sluggish, centralized mainframe computers to interlinked PCs.

In fact, traditional representative politics is coming to an end for "now citizens who live in representative democracies have the power to radically decentralize and to evolve into direct democracies.

In each of these areas, he surveys the major trends and observes the "global paradox" at work — as the world becomes vastly more integrated, the small, agile, and informed players will profit the most. Like his book Megatrends, this is a quick and dirty account of infintitely complex global trends.

The prose has the same breezy tone as your average newsweekly. Nevertheless, this book has has an important function, I think. It summarizes sweeping global trends that we need to recognize and reckon with — all of us, not just those the opinion-makers or those looking to profit from the new economy.
