Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism

"A cogent analysis of the concurrent Trump/Brexit phenomena and a dire warning about what lies ahead...a lucid, provocative book." --Kirkus Reviews Those who championed globalization once promised a world of winners, one in which free trade would lift all the world's boats, and extremes of left and right would give way to universally embraced liberal values. The past few years have shattered this fantasy, as those who've paid the price for globalism's gains have turned to populist and nationalist politicians to express fury at the political, media, and corporate elites they blame for their losses. The United States elected an anti-immigration, protectionist president who promised to "put America first" and turned a cold eye on alliances and treaties. Across Europe, anti-establishment political parties made gains not seen in decades. The United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.And as Ian Bremmer shows in this eye-opening book, populism is still spreading. Globalism creates plenty of both winners and losers, and those who've missed out want to set things right. They've seen their futures made obsolete. They hear new voices and see new faces all about them. They feel their cultures shift. They don't trust what they read. They've begun to understand the world as a battle for the future that pits "us" vs. "them." Bremmer points to the next wave of global populism, one that hits emerging nations before they have fully emerged. As in Europe and America, citizens want security and prosperity, and they're becoming increasingly frustrated with governments that aren't capable of providing them. To protect themselves, many government will build walls, both digital and physical. For instance...*In Brazil and other fast-developing countries, civilians riot when higher expectations for better government aren't being met--the downside of their own success in lifting millions from poverty. *In Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt and other emerging states, frustration with government is on the rise and political battle lines are being drawn. *In China, where awareness of inequality is on the rise, the state is building a system to use the data that citizens generate to contain future demand for change*In India, the tools now used to provide essential services for people who've never had them can one day be used to tighten the ruling party's grip on power. When human beings feel threatened, we identify the danger and look for allies. We use the enemy, real or imagined, to rally friends to our side. This book is about the ways in which people will define these threats as fights for survival. It's about the walls governments will build to protect insiders from outsiders and the state from its people.And it's about what we can do about it....

Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism Reviews

  • James Bingham

    This is an interesting book, but it reads more like an extended recap than any sort of in-depth analysis. There are a few summaries of problems being faced by specific countries around the world, which I found helpful, and a longer summary of why Bremmer thinks globalism has failed. But I found the book to be kind of pessimistic (which, maybe, it should be), and lacking in proposed solutions beyond very top-level "countries should invest in infrastructure and education" stuff. If this is a topic ...more

    A summary of developments

    Ian Bremmer describes the tendencies that have caused ruptures in the politics of major countries. He takes a politics-first view and describes how trends might affect the politics-society relationship. Provides a good overview of the developments, but not much else.

  • Thehounddawg

    Very interesting book with a wealth of information but based on an anti-globalism outlook that begins with conclusions and searches for rationale. While there is much to learn here about our country and a dozen selected countries around the world, I believe the author makes various assumptions based on his personal beliefs and not necessarily based on the observations and facts that he provides. Read with an open mind, absorb the information, but question his conclusions.

  • Stephanie

    A must read! Bremmer is no Trump apologist --- in fact, he's no fan. In the least. But he perfectly outlines Trump's rise to power - the how and why. Establishment morons (on both sides of the isle) would be smart to read up.

  • Myles

    An executive summary of platitudes framed as if they'll blow your mind. If you have functioning eyes and a subscription to the Guardian, you'll be able to spit this shit out in your sleep.

  • Matt Schiavenza

    Ian Bremmer's latest book is a breezy tour d'horizon of contemporary global affairs that offers little fresh insight and makes no real argument. The theme, such as there is one, is that populist movements have gained power across the world and that the neoliberal moment that emerged in the '90s is coming to an end. What's next? Bremmer offers a few possibilities but refuses to make any predictions or even state a preference.

    The Future Will Be Here

    Thought provoking and easy to understand. This made me see through someone else’s eyes. And made me realize I am not alone in my fear, that all of us are feeling our way in the dark.

    The future is coming, what it is and how we live in it. That’s the question.

  • Stephen

    Not the feel good book of the summer. Bremmer finds fault in the current state of affairs, as well as in the future of, many countries including Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, China, Russia, and India. After doing this he implies that reliance on private corporations are a big part of the solution. I'm not convinced.
