Argues that power is changing, becoming harder to use and easier to lose. All leaders have less power than their predecessors and the potential for upheaval is unprecedented. The antiestablishment drive of micropowers can topple tyrants, dislodge monopolies and open remarkable new opportunities but it can also lead to chaos.

Oh, wow! That sounds really gucci, CatherineG-1! Obviously, this guy is an employee of the World Bank, and obviously he will never explain that which is owned in the Western Hemisphere, especially North America, is through cross-stock ownership, illegal for quite awhile in the USA! Nor will he mention that the banks primarily own everything, the major ownership of Fortune 1000 corporations, all the financial exchanges and clearinghouses, et cetera, and certainly they own the oil companies. [FYI: author used to be with Foreign Policy, owned by Graham Holdings, formerly owners of the Washington Post, Phil Graham having worked for Allen Dulles at the OSS, and Katharine Meyer Graham the daughter of a former head of the Federal Reserve Bank. Imagine publishing this book right before the passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership!!!]

Classic redirection, misdirection, and misinformation. The critical point (where critical thinking is actually involved) is who owns those companies and corporations and oil companies and munitions companies and pharmaceutical companies, and most of all, the top banks? We now realize that the global economic meltdown was carefully planned and executed, with pretty much everything rigged (LIBOR rates, ISDA interest rate swaps' rates, and so forth). This guy is far too misleading, and avoiding the real facts. Why and how was it possible for the democratically-elected government of Honduras to be overthrown? Who was behind the multiple assassination attempts/coups of the Chavez administration in Venezuela? Let the author address real questions, not his fiction!
