IN THIS SUMMARY

A Giant Reborn is Belgian economist Johan Van Overtveldt's vigorous rejection that the American political and economic heyday has ended. The United States is poised to profit from the accelerated pace of change that he calls turbochange. Turbochange feeds on a combination of growth in human capital and knowledge, the entrepreneurial spirit, and globalism. Entrepreneurship and openness to change have characterized American culture since its beginning and propelled repeated comebacks from economic disaster throughout U.S. history. A strong rule of law, a widespread commitment to a free market, the cultural icon of the frontier, and openness to immigrants mark the U.S. as unique and place it as the frontrunner for dominance in the 21st century.
