You know those news reports that show how American students lag way behind kids from other far-off countries when it comes to scoring on standard math, science, and technology tests?

Well, those kids from those far off lands have now grown up and are eager to claim the world as their turf.

Globalization is about Americans outsourcing product development and services to other countries. Globality is the next step, where rapidly developing economies from around the world are now competing with us head to head. The authors present a strong case that the economic climate in which we have lived is going to change in unprecedented ways.

Sooner than we think, we will either end up working for these foreign-based companies or, even worse, have to compete with them. Globality will describe how these new companies have come to power, and how, in the west, we will have to step up our game if we are to compete with these new, lean, powerful businesses.
