'A fascinating tract on the state of the nation' - "Irish Examiner". 'McWilliams is a keen observer. This book is laden with insights' - "Sunday Business Post". As the Botox Economy is laid bare and the financial filler of other people's money becomes evident, the Jaggers, Jugglers and Bono Boomers struggle to maintain their slice of a diminished pie. However, the slow-down gives us the opportunity to take stock. There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic. Taking a trip around the globe from Shanghai to New York, from Latin America to Central Europe, we can learn from history and appreciate that Ireland has a unique economic resource: our Global Tribe. If we exploit the demographic potential of the diaspora, we can re-invigorate the nation. The prosperity of future Irish generations is based on harnessing the collective power of past generations. This is the global "Generation Game."
