Ian Bremmer details the growing phenomenon of state capitalism, a trend that he believes threatens America's competitive edge and the conduct of free markets everywhere.
State capitalism is a system in which governments drive local economies through ownership of market-dominant companies and large pools of excess capital, using them for political gain. In The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations? Bremmer, an expert on the intersection of economics and politics, demonstrates the growing challenge that state capitalism will pose for the entire global economy.
