Palgrave-Macmillan has just published the latest book by Joe Atikian, INDUSTRIAL SHIFT. This book can help you grasp some of the biggest trends in global economics whether you are a general reader or an economist. From the decline of manufacturing, to the rise of China, to jobs and the service sector in the age of outsourcing, you'll gain a stronger understanding than by reading articles and papers.

Even in our turbulent global economy, the popular idea of declining farms and factories is largely unfounded. UN and World Bank data show that food and manufacturing output are growing everywhere, but remain hidden by the faster-growing services sector. Engineers, programmers, surgeons, and pilots make up an ever increasing share of services, showing that even this much maligned sector is not in decline.

There is no doubt that industries are shifting, but how does it all add up? Publication in this field has lagged since the 1940s, leaving us with stale ideas about what makes a healthy economy. INDUSTRIAL SHIFT provides a freshly updated view that counters our tired assumptions about off-shoring, low wages, and industrial decline.
