Hassan Damluji leads the Middle East team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He is a co-founder of the $2 Billion Lives and Livelihoods Fund, the largest multilateral development fund based in the Middle East. He has been named every year since 2015 as one of the 100 most influential Arabs under 40, by Arabian Business magazine.
Damluji's fast-paced, highly readable book is an important contribution to the literature on how to make globalization work better. Instead, of just spelling out problems with the world as we find it, he seeks to build a new consensus around a more effective global order. Full of historical examples and insights, this is a book about what to do right now if we are to have a brighter future -- Masood Ahmed, President, Center for Global Development, Washington, D.C.

A must-read for anyone who wants solutions to our most important problems -- Riz Ahmed Thought provoking and well-written... a good read for people who care about solving global problems. Damluji puts forth ideas that can help make global systems more successful. -- Bill Gates
