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.  Print 9781907230790.

Worse trading terms with Europe and limited new trade deals?

Food being destroyed while prices rise and we import instead?

Energy prices much higher than those in Europe?


  • There are no shortages in Europe, therefore the pandemic is not their cause.
  • Other relationships with Europe are possible that do little or no damage.
  • The 2016 referendum merely said "leave the European Union".
  • It did not specify what the new relationship should be.


This careful analysis sets out the main options and their consequences.  Read it to learn why a better Brexit, fixing the mess, is possible.
