Insightful, well written and I found the pace just right. The storyline took an interesting twist at the end which didn’t disappoint." - UK reviewer

 "It’s a tale that will keep them wondering, gasping, thinking, smiling, grimacing, rereading. What more can a reader ask for?" - UK Reviewer

Challenges the economic consensus

This book shows that all schemes that borrow from the future are thwarted by three related concepts:

  • the true cost of debt to society,

  • the central banking economic cycle, and

  • the financial system limit.

The author challenges the existing academic and political consensus about how economies should be managed.

Whether you are a concerned individual, an academic, politician, banker or even a policymaker, read about a different view of the current financial orthodoxies, one that will provoke serious debate and even action.

“Radical thinkers might have a point” was how the Financial Times described David Kauders’ first book, The Greatest Crash: How contradictory policies are sinking the global economy.


E-book 9781907230776 (AUD 8.75 incl. GST) and paperback 9781907230783 (AUD 20 incl. GST) available nowPaperback printed locally, available from any bookshop

Hardcover editions 9781907230790 (UK, with postscript) and 9781907230769.
