"Global Balance: Peace and Human Development (2009 Update)" offers perspective on how the world has worked for more than two thousand years--and how America is now working against itself. Explaining the risks of foreign dependencies to national security, the economy, and even American democracy, Dr. Joseph Stedman presents a rational business plan for a complex, competitive, and challenging future. "Global Balance" is an excellent guide to understanding cross-national/global research. In this time of social unrest and an uncertain future, how can Americans and all citizens of the world find security and quality of life? Joseph B. Stedman, PhD, brings these global issues into a new light with his groundbreaking work, Global Balance. The facts suggest that peace and human development require a stable and relatively balanced environment. Unfortunately, today's world is neither stable nor well balanced. The trend for the majority of populations around the world, including the United States, is toward rich and poor. So where does that leave the middle class? The United States is not a poor country, but Dr. Stedman details the critical and growing dependencies our nation faces. In addition to explaining the risks of dependencies to the security, the economy, and the very democracy of the United States, Dr. Stedman presents a rational business plan for the future. With the world becoming more complex, competitive, and challenging every day, it is important to strive for an improved human condition for all. Dr. Stedman empowers you with both knowledge and hope for a better world. Global Balance is a must-read for every member of the declining middle class and for students of international affairs.
Joseph B. Stedman has more than forty years of professional real-world experience in business, banking, insurance, real estate, and teaching management, finance, and international studies. He is formally educated in business, economics, and sociology, with advanced degrees in political science, international management, and information sciences.
