'We are where we are' and Life After the State examines where we have come from, how we arrived here and charts a route out of the bourgeoning serfdom we increasingly seem destined for.
Dominic Frisby disambiguates the complex interplay inherent in our democratic, consumer-driven and growth obsessed world, in a tone which is clear, honest and arguably difficult for an acclaimed economist to mimic. His book objectively examines how human nature left to its own devices has proven to be a powerful force for good and contends how a well-intended bureaucracy, combined with a fiat monetary system, unintentionally or otherwise, stifles self reliance, encourages excess debt, causes prices to inflate and capital to be misallocated. The implications for education, healthcare, enterprise and thereby the general well being of society are clearly profound.
This book tells it like it is; suitably free from vested interests, cronyism or state subsidy.
