The Great Demographic Reversal
Reviewer: Dame Kate Barker, British Coal Staff Superannuation Scheme
This book demonstrates how these demographic trends are on the point of reversing sharply, coinciding with a retreat from globalisation. The result? Ageing can be expected to raise inflation and interest rates, bringing a slew of problems for an over-indebted world economy, but is also anticipated to increase the share of labour, so that inequality falls.
The Cost of Free Money
Reviewer: Vicky Pryce
A penetrating account of how unchecked capital mobility is damaging international cooperation, polarizing the economic landscape, and ultimately reshaping the global order.
You're Paid What You're Worth
And Other Myths of the Modern Economy
Reviewer: Rosemary Connell
A myth-busting book challenges the idea that we’re paid according to objective criteria and places power and social conflict at the heart of economic analysis.
Reviewer: William Allen, National Institute of Economic and Social Research
This is the inside story of the US–China trade war, how relations between these superpowers unraveled, darkening prospects for global peace and prosperity, as told by two Wall Street Journal reporters, one based in Washington, D.C., the other in Beijing, who have had more access to the decision makers in the White House and in China’s Zhongnanhai leadership compound than anyone else.
A Moonshot Guide to Changing Capitalism
Reviewer: Bridget Rosewell
Even before the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, capitalism was stuck. It had no answers to a host of problems, including disease, inequality, the digital divide and, perhaps most blatantly, the environmental crisis. Taking her inspiration from the 'moonshot' programmes which successfully co-ordinated public and private sectors on a massive scale, Mariana Mazzucato calls for the same level of boldness and experimentation to be applied to the biggest problems of our time.
This Sovereign Isle
Britain In and Out of Europe
Reviewer: Kevin Gardiner, Rothschild & Co/Cardiff Capital Region Economic Growth Partners
In this succinct book, Tombs shows that the decision to leave the EU is historically explicable - though not made historically inevitable - by Britain's very different historical experience, especially in the twentieth century, and because of our more extensive and deeper ties outside Europe.
The Great British Reboot
How the UK Can Thrive in a Turbulent World
Reviewer: Christine Shields
An optimistic exploration of how, through radical economic reform, the United Kingdom can prosper and flourish in the new global economy.
The Rise of Global Liquidity
Reviewer: Melissa Davies, Redburn
Global Liquidity is a much-discussed, but narrowly-researched and vaguely-defined topic. This book deeply explores the subject by clearly defining and measuring liquidity worldwide and by showing its importance for investors.
Reviewer: Ian Bright
In Angrynomics, Mark Blyth and Eric Lonergan explore the rising tide of anger, sometimes righteous and useful, sometimes destructive and ill-targeted, and propose radical new solutions for an increasingly polarized and confusing world.
Greed is Dead:
Politics after Individualism
Reviewer: Bridget Rosewell, Volterra Partners
Collier and Kay show how a reaffirmation of the values of mutuality could refresh and restore politics, business and the environments in which people live. Politics could reverse the moves to extremism and tribalism; businesses could replace the greed that has degraded corporate culture; the communities and decaying places that are home to many could overcome despondency and again be prosperous and purposeful.
