How to Run the World
- Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance
- By: Parag Khanna
- Narrated by: Jim Meskimen
- Length: 8 hrs and 58 mins
Here is a stunning and provocative guide to the future of international relations—a system for managing global problems beyond the stalemates of business versus government, East versus West, rich versus poor, democracy versus authoritarianism, free markets versus state capitalism. Written by the most esteemed and innovative adventurer-scholar of his generation, Parag Khanna’s How to Run the World is the cutting-edge manifesto for diplomacy in a borderless world.

I first saw Parag Khanna talk in 2016, and I found his vision of how connectivity changes the global order inspiring. But this work presents little more food for thought than his one hour speech at the Smart City Expo.
This book does a decent job of outlining emerging trends, and providing examples of the actors of these trends.
I find this book falls short of the mark due to its prescription to simply do more of what is currently being done. Rather than trying to envision how the emerging trends he presents are likely to truly change the world order.
