With the end of the cold war and the rise of a new global economy, age-old ethnic ties as the most powerful force in international commerce. In this landmark study of racial and ethnic factors in the evolution of international business, Joel Kotkin focuses on the development of five dispersed ethnic groups, or what he calls global tribes - the Jews, the British, the Japanese, the Chinese and the Indians - whose impact on the world economy has been most profound. Despite vastly different histories, each global tribe shares quintessential characteristics that will determine success in the economy of the twenty-first century: A strong ethnic identity, with a sense of mutual dependence and emphasis on the family structure. A global network based on tribal trust that allows the group to function collectively. A passion for technology and a belief in scientific progress. Brilliantly researched and powerfully presented, "Tribes" offers a new view of the moral, religious and family bases of economic success not only in the past, but in the future that is unfolding before us.
