A Banquet of Consequences, Revised - Have We Consumed Our Own Future?

Author(s): Satyajit Das

Non Fiction

Essential reading for anyone concerned about the dire future of the global economy, the deepening environmental crisis the alarming deterioration of our social fabric, A Banquet of Consequences incisively explains the problems confronting us, how we're making those problems worse, and what the real solutions are. For ordinary individuals, the goal of a steady job, a home of one's own, a comfortable retirement and a good life for our children is receding. In this brilliantly clear-eyed account, updated to include 150 pages of new insights and analysis, Satyajit Das links past, present and future to show that it's not just unrealistic expectations, but the poor performance of those governing us that are to blame. The strategies and policies deployed to promote economic growth after the Great Recession have failed, not least because such growth cannot continue indefinitely. The solution - structural change - is electorally unpopular and therefore ignored. A Banquet of Consequences explains why the ultimate adjustment, whether stretched out over time or in the form of another sudden crash, will be life-changing. An internationally respected commentator on financial markets, credited with predicting the Global Financial Crisis and featured in the 2010 Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job, Satyajit Das is our finest writer about money and the global economy. Informed, impassioned, lively and witty, A Banquet of Consequences is the only book you need to understand what the future will bring.
