“A timely, provocative, and instructive book for policymakers, CEOs, and ordinary citizens alike. It’s a new world, and Peter Henry shares the lessons with us all.”
—Tom Brokaw, NBC News Special Correspondent and author of The Time of Our Lives

“Peter Henry had the original thought that the experiences of ‘emerging economies’ may contain lessons for advanced economies. He shows that they do, but not in any crude cookie-cutter way. The vital common thread is the capacity to form a future-oriented policy and stick to it with discipline. This is why we—all of us—need grown-ups.”
—Robert M. Solow, Nobel Laureate in Economics (1987)

“A riveting tour of postwar world growth, replete with policy successes and devastating mistakes, Turnaround is essential reading for anyone willing to be convinced that learning should be a two-way street between advanced and developing economies.”
—Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate in Economics (2001)

“Tempering the ‘dismal science’ with a healthy dose of optimism, Turnaround exposes sobering realities of the world economy, yet paints a hopeful picture of prosperity for the countries of Africa and, indeed, all nations.”
—Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia and Nobel Peace Laureate (2011)

“A child of the Third World risen to First World academic prominence, Peter Henry effectively bridges both worlds, offering a vision of what leaders can achieve if they take the long road, implementing sensible economic policies with accountability, integrity, and persistence.”
—Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Minister of Finance of Nigeria

Turnaround is not only highly readable, it ought to be read by specialists and by policymakers who will inevitably have to deal with the issues that Henry so expertly analyzes.”
—Stanley Fischer, Governor of the Bank of Israel

“A compelling analysis of the trends that are transforming emerging markets and a practical assessment of what it all means for the global economy.”
—Kenneth I. Chenault, chairman and CEO, American Express Company
