An American globalization story If you like The West Wing, you will love this book. It is the only novel that dissects the growing impact of the global economy on Americans. America is a sitting duck, and the American Dream is the first casualty of the trade war that has already begun. Warren Buffett, aka the "Sage of Omaha," warns that the U.S. trade deficit is a bigger threat to the domestic economy than either the federal deficit or consumer debt and that it could lead to political turmoil. (AP report on a Buffet speech in Reno, NV January 17, 2006) An Iranian-American woman, her lobbyist lover, a Japanese reformer, a yakusa chieftain, a Congresswoman from Ohio, an African-American war vet, and a Silicone Valley poster boy lead a rich cast in a ballet that describes the political and economic threads tying down the American Gulliver.
