does for understanding the economy, The J Curve
does for better understanding how nations behave. The J curve is a visual tool that allows us to see at a glance why some crucial countries are in crisis and unstable while others are prosperous and politically solid. In this imaginative, playful, and practical guide, Ian Bremmer, an expert on the politics of international business, turns conventional wisdom on its head. He reveals how the United States can begin more successfully to act in its own interests… Bremmer's tour of the nations of the world—our friends, our foes, and others in between—shows us how to see the world fresh, get rid of shopworn attitudes, and discover a new and useful way of thinking.
