THE NEXT FACTORY OF THE WORLD How Chinese Investment is Reshaping Africa

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nancy Wu

Business & Finance • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Nancy Wu's beautifully lilting speaking voice brings to mind the tone and youthful curiosity of NPR's Terry Gross. Variations in pacing and intensity make the author's complex sentences come alive and reveal great sensitivity to the pathos of the broader story of how industrialization disrupts societies. More than Chinese entrepreneurs shifting manufacturing capacity to four diverse African countries, the McKinsey consultant's often moving writing explains the interplay among a country's economic policies, personal lifestyles and family life, capital and labor supply, and the opportunities and perils that industrialization brings to a country. With her insights, captivating storytelling, and knack for stirring curiosity, Irene Yuan Sun has created a must-hear audiobook for anyone wanting an unbiased, no-holds-barred look at how factory work transforms individual lives and entire regions.
