"Bill Orr has produced a handy compendium of statistics, with cogent explanations, on the world economy in the 1990s. National incomes, output, trade, asset markets, debt, foreign aid and population are presented by nation, region and level of development. As a tool, it belongs in the office, study, or newsroom next to the dictionary, and the atlas."
--Charles P. Kindleberger, Professor of Economics, Emeritus Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The Global Economy in the 90s provides a broad statistical guide for all of us in an era of increasing international interdependence: a much-needed contribution.
--Alfred J. Malabre, Jr., author of Within Our Means
"Talk about timely! Like a light in the dark swamp of geo- political-governmental charts, graphs, and tables. [Orr] is there standing over your shoulder, showing you how he interprets each and every graph, and before you know it, you've got your calculator out, and you start to see things that you never saw before. It's addictive. No boring textbook, this book is a masterfully navigated experience through a very confusing jungle. Orr has taken the statistics from dozens of sources and recast them into graphs that are so easy to read. Try it yourself, open the book anywhere. This is a real gem."

The Global Economy in the 1990s presents, in one comprehensive volume, essential facts and analyses of all aspects of an increasingly integrated global economy.
