Summary
"The financial crisis brought the world to the brink of economic breakdown. But now bankers' bonuses are back, house prices are rising again and politicians promise recovery - all this while unemployment remains high, debts mount, frictions with China grow and the planet overheats. Is this really sustainable or do we need to change course? In this incisive assessment of the post-crisis world, the author looks at what went wrong, and how to learn from past mistakes. Reporting first-hand from around the world - frozen Iceland, anxious America and Australia, invigorated India, bubbly Brazil and futuristic Shanghai - as well as from Britain, the book combines expert analysis with provocative opinion to warn of the dangers ahead."--Publisher's description
