Moises Naim is the author of The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being In Charge Isn’t What It Used to Be (Basic Books, 2013). Dr. Naim served as the Minister of Finance in Venezuela, the Executive Director of the World Bank, and Editor of Foreign Policy magazine. He is now Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. As such, Dr. Naim writes as a scholar, practitioner, and witness to global change over the last three decades.
His new book explains how major trends in business, politics, and society are displacing traditional centers of power and creating new micropowers. Revolutions are changing political institutions, but also the structure of power in the financial, cultural, and religious sectors. The breadth and depth of the book result in a powerful description of the complex world in which we now live.
