Stealth of Nations free pdf An eye-opening account of the informal economy around the globe, "Stealth of Nations" traces the history and reach of unregulated markets, and explains the unwritten rules that govern them. Journalist Robert Neuwirth joins globe-trotting Nigerians who sell Chinese cell phones and laid-off San Franciscans who use Twitter to market street food and learns that the people who work in informal economies are entrepreneurs who provide essential services and crucial employment. Dubbing this little-recognized business arena with a new name--"System D"--Neuwirth points out that it accounts for a growing amount of trade, and that, united in a single nation, it would be the world's second-largest economy, trailing only the United States in financial might. "Stealth of Nations" offers an inside look at the thriving world of unfettered trade and finds far more than a chaotic emporium of dubious pirated goods.

About Robert Neuwirth

Robert Neuwirth spent two years infiltrating street markets and networks of low-level smugglers around the world to write "Stealth of Nations." He lived in squatter communities for a similar amount of time to write his first book, "Shadow Cities." These globe-trotting ventures were supported, in part, by the MacArthur Foundation and the Fund for Investigative Journalism. His work has been featured in many publications including "The New York Times," "The Washington Post," "Financial Times" Deutschland, "Forbes," "Fortune," "Foreign Policy," "Harper's," "Scientific American," and "Wired." Neuwirth has taught in the college program at Rikers Island (New York City's jail) and at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. He is also in demand as a public speaker, and his TED talk on squatters has been viewed by close to a quarter of a million people.
