The way we are governed is changing. Government has less and less power to influence how we live our lives, while the private sector has more power than ever to control what we do and what we think. Yet the business pages of the newspapers still come as a supplement, while the ac...tivities of governments dominate the front pages and the headlines. To understand the new world in which we are living, we need to learn to challenge long-held assumptions about the nature of power in society. This text aims to be a guide to that new understanding as we enter the 21st century; a time in which we can no longer rely on politicians - of whatever stripe - to meet our needs; a time in which business, rather than political parties, offers the way forward; a time in which we can make more of an impact through our pockets than we have ever done through the ballot box. The book is based on Hertz's experience as a consultant to businesses and governments, and also on dozens of research interviews conducted especially for this book, with a range of figures from Rupert Murdoch to Evgeny Primakov.
