Alongside her considerable academic achievements, Dambisa also has an impressive work history with both the World Bank and Goldman Sachs where she was employed as a consultant and an economist in the global macroeconomics team.

Recently Dambisa Moyo has written and released a brand new book entitled ‘Winner Take All: China’s race for resources and what it means for the world.’ This has only just gone on sale in the U.S and Canada and has already jumped to the 9th bestseller place on Amazon.
In this book, Dambisa examines a world that is ill-prepared for the commodity supply-demand imbalances we face over the next decade in arable land, water, energy and minerals.
Using the in-depth research that she has carried out prior to writing this book, Dambisa uncovers the realities and trends behind the numbers. Thus revealing the true state of the contemporary world and the shape it will take over the coming decades.
Throughout the book, Moyo explores the three-pronged strategy that underpins China’s global resource campaign and the political implications of China’s rush for resources.
The overall result is a challenging book that looks at the hard facts we all need to face if we want a just, balanced and peaceful global economy for the 21st Century.
