Dambisa Moyo

Hardly a day passes when newspaper headlines or media commentators don't scream warnings of impending doom,shortages of arable land, clashes over water, and political Armageddon as global demand for fossil fuels far outstrips supply,but only one country appears to understand the importance of controlling these crucial assets: China. In Winner Take All , international economist and bestselling author Dambisa Moyo explains the implications of China's aggressive rush for resources around the world, a campaign that surpasses even the voracious demands for raw materials sparked by the Industrial Revolution. As Moyo compellingly argues, China's seemingly unstoppable drive will have global consequences for us all.
