Editorial Reviews

Review

“With Winner Take All, Dambisa Moyo offers a timely and provocative answer to two crucial questions: How are China's leaders rushing to meet their country's exploding demand for energy, and what does this mean for the rest of us? From Africa to Central Asia to Latin America, China exerts growing influence over prices for the commodities we all must buy to fuel our cars, heat our homes, and power our economies. It's a recipe for conflict—and at a crucial moment for the future of the global economy.” Business Insider“If Moyo's calculations are correct, we are in big trouble which makes the central premise of her book, Winner Take All, all the more arresting. . . . To western eyes, Winner Take All makes for scary reading.” Huntington News (Huntington, WV)“‘Winner Take All' is an important book and should be read by everyone seeking to understand the importance of commodities in a world where population growth is outpacing the supply of the commodities needed to sustain life.” The Financial Times


Kirkus Reviews“Written to clarify important global questions, this book deserves a wide audience.”
 Jim Rogers, author of Hot Commodities and A Gift to My Children“Dambisa Moyo offers a smart primer for investors looking to make sense of the opportunities and risks in the commodity space today. You must read this book if you want to understand the reality of what's happening in the world today. I am afraid the West is going to wake up too late to prepare for the future.” 
Peter Munk, Chairman and Founder, Barrick Gold Corporation“For anyone longing to make sense of tectonic, eco-political shifts occurring in the commodities market, Winner Takes All is a fascinating and important book. By focusing her razor-sharp mind on China's central role in the new commodities rush, Moyo sheds light on and makes sense of a profound and dramatic moment in our history. Her book is a must-read." 
Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group and author of The End of the Free Market

Steven W. Mosher, The Washington Times
“All over the world, China is snapping up mines, agricultural land and oil fields at a frenetic pace, often paying more — considerably more — than the going rate. The sheer scale of its purchases is astonishing.” Asian Review of Books
“[A] warning call by a celebrity intellectual, Winner Take All serves a useful purpose.” Winnipeg Free Press (Canada)
“While at heart a book of facts and figures, it is a warning to western governments and a source of valuable information to investors about where to hedge the commodity dollar of the future.” Globe and Mail (Canada)
“Moyo, a youthful emerging superstar among global-economy mavens, is… not afraid of controversy, as in her new book, a portrait of a world of shrinking resources and potential clashes over them: water, arable land, energy supplies.”
China Economic Review
Winner Take All is impressive in its scope, ranging from the current state of global resource demand and trends in Chinese acquisitions to how commodity trading works and future trends in the demand and supply of resources.”

The Nation

Winner Take All, Dambisa Moyo's new book on China's role in the current global resource race, is a… call to arms against a country that she sees as cannibalizing the world's resources while others foolishly sleep.” ExpatChn.com (Shanghai)“Winner Take All is well-researched and chock-full of information about the global commodities market. It's an important and worthwhile…ead that provides context for many current events and our world economy—and if Moyo's predictions turn out to be accurate, it will shed light on future political issues, too.” Journal of International Affairs“The story of China's remarkable transformation over the past 30 years from an impoverished agrarian society into the world's second largest economy has been extensively documented. Less attention, however, has been given to the consequences of the country's breakneck growth rates on global commodity supply and demand…. Moyo's book offers a useful primer on the policies China has adopted to satisfy its commodity demand, and the consequences of these policies for the rest of the world.”
iTV-Asia
“[Moyo] does her homework, takes no one's word as gospel, considers all sides and makes a very persuasive and troubling case for the Chinese approach to resource security.”

“If we do have to face facts, Moyo is our woman.
Winner Takes All would delight Gradgrind: it is peppered with nuggets and statistics, both macro and micro. One cannot accuse Moyo of failing to do her homework. So much has been packed into it that her book is impossible to read without learning something. . . . [Winner Takes All] is a warning of crippling resource scarcity.” The Irish Examiner
