The Quest – Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World
“This is one book you must read to understand the future of our economy and our way of life.” - Walter Isaacson, President and CEO of The Aspen Institute
An international expert on energy, international politics and economics, Daniel Yergin is the co-founder and chairman of Cambridge Energy Research Associates, an energy research consultancy. He is an author and Pulitzer Prize-winner for his book The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power, which was turned into a PBS mini-series documentary about the economic history of the 20th century. Yergin will dynamically address the conflicting choices and visions for the world economy and the great battle over globalization.
