In this wide-ranging collection of essays first published between 2007 and 2014, Charles Wolf Jr. shares his insights on the world’s economies, including those of China, the United States, Japan, Korea, India, and others. First appearing in such periodicals as in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and the Weekly Standard, among others, these chapters take on a range of issues in the global economy, from China’s political economy and in its interactions with the United States to a comparative assessment of the Chinese and Indian economies during the next decade to the costs of Korean reunification to the shortcomings of Keynesian economics to economic inequality and more. Each chapter includes a brief “postaudit” in which the author attempts to grade how well or ill the essay seems in retrospect.

Looking Backward and Forward

Author: Charles Wolf Jr.
ISBN: 978-0-8179-4872-6

This collection of twenty-five essays written over the past five years by international economic policy expert Charles Wolf Jr. covers a range of worldwide economic, political, security, and diplomatic issues. Wolf looks at the challenges facing the United States at home and around the globe including critical issues regarding China, Japan, Korea, Russia, Iraq, and other key locales. Throughout the book, the author offers his often-controversial viewpoints, such as his assertion that "unilateralism" in U.S. national security policy may sometimes be preferable to multilateralism or that the erroneous expectation that Iraq possessed nuclear weapons does not imply that the intelligence leading to this expectation was flawed. Wolf reexamines each essay in the light of later developments with a "postaudit" comment to address whether the original argument is still valid and relevant compared with when it was first written.
