Summary "Connected: 24 Hours in the Global Economy isn't another polemic for or against globalization. Daniel Altman takes you on a whirlwind journey through more than a dozen cities, gathering points of view from moguls, ministers, and the man and woman on the street. At each stop you'll hear how the world's workers played their parts in the events of a single day."--Jacket.
