Adrian Wooldridge is The Economist’s management editor and author of the Schumpeter column. He was previously based in Washington, DC as the Washington bureau chief, where he also wrote the Lexington column, as well as serving as The Economist’s West Coast correspondent, management correspondent and Britain correspondent. An expert on globalisation, entrepreneurship and the talent economy, his books include The Company: A short history of a revolutionary idea and The Fourth Revolution: The global race to reinvent the state.
In his new book The Great Disruption, Adrian investigates the forces that are disrupting today’s fast-moving business world. The disruption has many causes: the internet’s rapid spread; the challenge from emerging markets in innovation and manufacturing; clever management techniques that are forcing companies to rethink strategy; robots advancing from the factory floor into the service sector; and much more. These developments are shaking business and social life to its foundations, producing a new set of winners and losers, and forcing everyone to adapt and change.
