From the chief economic commentator for the Financial Times--a brilliant tour d'horizon of the new global economy
There have been many books that have sought to explain the causes and courses of the financial and economic crisis that began in 2007. The Shifts and the Shocks is not another detailed history of the crisis but is the most persuasive and complete account yet published of what the crisis should teach us about modern economies and econom-ics. Written with all the intellectual command and trenchant judgment that have made Martin Wolf one of the world's most influential economic com-mentators, The Shifts and the Shocks matches impressive analysis with no-holds-barred criti-cism and persuasive prescription for a more stable future. It is a book no one with an interest in global affairs will want to neglect.
