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
