Uprising: Will Emerging Markets Shape or Shake the World Economy?


“A level-headed, reasonable and fascinating analysis, and a valuable and accessible tool for any investor trying to make sense of the world.”
Gillian Tett, US Managing Editor, Financial Times

“Anyone interested in the forces shaping the global economy, and our prosperity, should read Uprising.
Robert Peston , BBC Business Editor

“Balanced and instructive. For Chinese readers the book is a mirror through which they can see a clearer image of their own problems. For non-Chinese readers, this is a good handbook on the current state of China’s economy.”
Professor Yu Yongding , President, China Society of World Economics

“This well-reasoned and informative book is a must for anyone who wants to udnerstand the challenges ahead for emerging countries.”
Nouriel Roubini , Professor of Economics at NYU Stern School of Business and Chairman of Roubini Global Economics

“For those suffering from advanced Sinoptimism—the belief that China will inevitably take over the world in the 21st century—George Magnus offers a therapeutic skepticism. Elegantly weaving together his unrivalled knowledge of the global financial crisis with his deep understanding of the long-term trends in international development and demography, Magnus lays bare the Asian dragon’s many frailties. Uprising will persuade you that there is much about today’s emerging markets that is still distinctly Third World. If Magnus is right, the ultimate fate of the ‘BRICS’ will not be to rise inexorably, but to drop like, well, bricks.”
Niall Ferguson , Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History at Harvard University, William Ziegler Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and author of The Ascent of Money
