As a business consultant and professor, Dr. Javaid R. Khwaja watches the economy with a keen eye. His new book, "Toward a General Theory of Exchange: Strategic Decisions and Complexity" (published by iUniverse), explains the current economic situation and how technology has influenced its evolution since the advent of the Internet.
"This work presents the economic science in a refreshing manner, and places it in a modern context, tracing out the ramifications of the impact of such a paradigm shift," says Khwaja.
At 584 pages, the book is packed full of useful information and thorough explanations of the current economic environment. Khwaja discusses how technology, specifically the Internet, has affected the social exchanges and trends in the market.
