Product description

About the Author

Dr. Geoffrey F. (Geoff) Davies is a scientist, author and commentator. Born to a farming family and growing up in Australia, Geoff's life has taken him to the USA and back and through several important stages - student, scientist, commentator, learning to be a real person (i.e. growing up some more), father, grandfather and Author Outside His Designated Field. These days he is less concerned with exploring the universe and more concerned with helping humanity to live sensibly with each other on the only planet we have. On economics: Geoff is the author of Economia (2004), the eBook The Nature of the Beast (self-published, 2012), and the eBook Sack the Economists (2013). The commentator: Geoff has contributed opinion pieces over many years to local newspapers and magazines. Since 2009 he has preserved them on the blog http://betternature.wordpress.com . He has long experience, in science and elsewhere, in assessing fractious debates on difficult topics. He has lectured on New Science and Old Wisdom and Playing With Superfire (the misapplication of technology to biological systems). The Scientist: Geoff is a retired Senior Fellow (now a Visiting Fellow) in geophysics at the Australian National University. He has authored over one hundred scientific papers and two scientific books and has a Hirsch index of 38 (38 papers each with at least 38 citations, indicating significant international standing and influence). In 2005 he was awarded the inaugural Augustus Love medal for geodynamics by the European Geosciences Union.  He was selected in 1992 as a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union. His most recent scientific book, Mantle Convection for Geologists, won the 2011 Mary B. Ansari Best Reference Work Award of the GeoScience Information Society.

I have been reading everything I can get my hands on, blogs and books, regarding the financial crisis since 2008 and this is, by far, the best book I have come across on the topic.

It's written in layman's language, is easy to follow and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

This book dismantles the idea that Economics is in any way a science, at best it's badly educated guesswork, at worst it's corrupt manipulation of reality. There seems to be a wilfull contempt for simple accounting and basic mathamatics.

5.0 out of 5 stars who has taken a great deal of interest in monetary systems 13 Sept. 2014
By Pedro Wilhelm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author is a world class scientist, who has taken a great deal of interest in monetary systems, banks, and all that passes as economics..

A very interesting and penetrating critique of those who advise (economists) those who do not know (politicians), and from which so much turmoil and havoc are created. Written from a scientific perspective, but easily readable, and very informative

Economics certainly has more to do with arts, than rigorous scientific studies, and the shortcomings are many and articulated very clearly.
But more importantly, new answers to the present dilemmas facing the global financial system are provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent author and relevent title. 1 Feb. 2014
By Ronald Bastian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Dr Davies is a "here-and-now" writer as his recent works, including this one, explains in clear and simple parables how the current economists have been getting it so wrong but appear to be in denial at the expense of us all
.
This book, as well as his previous books, are, in my opinion, to be regarded as "must-reads" for those of us who have a keen and unbiased interest in economics and politics. His writing is designed for those who need to understand how we can bring back "common- sense" solutions to the current chaotic financial mess that gave us the GFC.
4.0 out of 5 stars And we let these people run our economies? 12 Sept. 2014
By Dr. Niall McLaren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Starts out as an opinionated roar of rage, then settles into his stride and strips the nonsense from this most pretentious of pseudosciences. An excellent example of how a complete outsider can see through the high-sounding verbiage to expose the fallacies at the core of this destructive industry. I would make every parliamentarian and congressman read it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Davies Nails It! 8 Jan. 2014
By Randall Bellamy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In general accordance with the astute and specific obsrvations of Steve Keen, Geoff Davies provides plenty of reasons for doing just what his book's title prescribes. To have not included debt in their economic models is profoundly ignorant behavior by the near totality of the world's "economists", indicating truly sheepish mentality and deficiencies of both intellect and courage.
5.0 out of 5 stars ECONOMISTS, START THINKING 3 Feb. 2014
By Luis Maldonado Lince - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A brilliantly developed logic. Common sense doesnt make dents in doctrine or ideology diferences, except to promote debate and fruitful interchange of ideas. This is the purpose of this book. Put prejudice away and read it. You will not regret the effort.
