Synopsis

The financial crisis brought the world to the brink of economic breakdown. Now bankers' bonuses are back, house prices are rising again and politicians promise recovery while unemployment rises, frictions with China grow and the planet overheats. Is this really sustainable? In this incisive assessment of the post-crisis world, Philippe looks at what went wrong, and how the world's leaders and financial institutions can learn from their disastrous mistakes. Reporting first-hand from around the world, he explains how the world economy is being reshaped and what it means for jobs and our future prospects. He sets out the huge dangers ahead - and the opportunities to craft a fairer, safer, richer and greener world in this wide-ranging, brilliant and impassioned book.
