Riches Among the Ruins included in Strategy + Business’s Best Business Books of 2009

We are proud to announce that Riches Among the Ruins: Adventures in the Dark Corners of the Global Economy by Robert P. Smith with Peter Zheutlin has been selected by Strategy + Business’ as one of the Best Business Books of 2009 in the globalization category.

In the evolution from Smith’s boots-on-the-ground adventures to Bremmer and Keat’s more detached, methodological approach, an interesting mutual appreciation appears: Smith thinks that his adventurous tactics are no longer relevant in a world of real-time, electronic information, yet Bremmer and Keat argue that local political knowledge is still essential to staying ahead of the curve. In other words, paying more attention to data is not enough—good instincts are also essential to figuring out all the unknowns.
