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 9781907230769.
