This major new book by Roger Bootle, founder and MD of Capital Economics and author of the bestselling "Money for Nothing" and "The Death of Inflation" discusses both measures to get the world out of the immediate hole and the reforms that will be necessary to keep it on the straight and narrow in the future. These truly radical proposals encompass much tighter regulation of banks, reform of corporate boardrooms and changes affecting institutional investors. Written in Roger Bootle's characteristically highly readable and acerbically witty style is the must-have book from one of Britain's most respected economists.

Roger Bootle is one of Britain's most respected economists. He has a reputation for originality, forthrightness and insight which few can match. In 1996 he rocked the economic establishment with his prophetic books, The Death of Inflation and latterly Money for Nothing, which forecast the crash in the housing market. At the time he was roundly criticised, but events have proved him right. Bootle runs the influential London-based consultancy Capital Economics, which advises some of the world's largest banks, fund managers and retailers, as well as house-builders, lenders and assorted companies of all shapes and sizes. He is also Economic Adviser to Deloitte & Touche, a Specialist Adviser to the House of Commons Treasury Committee and a Visiting Professor at Manchester Business School. He was formerly Group Chief Economist of HSBC, and before the change of government, he was a member of the former Chancellor's panel of Independent Economic Advisers, the so-called Wise MenA". He is an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries. Bootle studied at Oxford University and then became a Lecturer in Economics at St Anne's College, Oxford. He has written many articles and books on monetary economics. He writes a widely read weekly column in The Telegraph, appears frequently on television and radio, and is a much sought-after speaker at conferences and business gatherings around the world.
