Product description

Review

'King writes with an authoritative and erudite voice, making him an excellent guide through the convolutions of the financial crisis.' --Iain Morris, The Observer, 26th May 2013

'His clear-eyed assessment of the problems ahead makes the book essential reading.' --The Economist, 9th May 2013

'King's clear sighted and highly readable book is a timely reminder of just how challenging Britain's problems still are...the economic equivalent of post-apocalyptic fiction'. --Philip Aldrick, The Sunday Telegraph, 19th May 2013

'Instead of believing that everything is once again on an upward trajectory - however slow - after the banking collapse, King argues that stagnation could well become the norm...King doesn't exactly prescribe a cure, other than that our expectations need lowering, but in assessing the problem he is admirably thorough.' --James Ashton, Evening Standard, 30th May 2013

'King is a tough-minded economist and his approach is analytical and brilliantly educational, though you might wish you hadn't learnt some of the stuff in these pages...There are too many entertaining but depressing examples to list here. Instead, I will focus on the book's greatest strength, which is its clear sense of the role of belief or, if you prefer, psychology in the working of the economy.' --Bryan Appleyard, New Statesman, 31st May 2013

'[King] wants to chill you with a tale of how western economies have lost their way...a polished performer, the tone is breezy and King ranges widely...[he] makes a great case for further decline in the West.' --Dominic O'Connell, Sunday Times, 2nd June 2013

'...beautifully written.' --Hamish McRae, The Independent, 4th June 2013

'...lively and provocative'. --Ferdinando Giugliano, Financial Times, 10th June 2013

'...admirably thorough'. --James Ashton, Scotland on Sunday, 9th June 2013

'It is it alarmingly difficult to disagree with Stephen King. All one can say, perhaps, is that one of the great errors of human nature - strongly displayed before the credit crunch - is the belief that a prevailing trend will continue indefinitely. The crunch is surely a reminder that what goes up must come down'. --Charles Moore, Daily Telegraph, 24th June 2013.

'...admirably thorough'. --James Ashton, Scotland on Sunday, 9th June 2013

'King argues...that the future is not what it used to be. We have made promises to ourselves we cannot afford to keep. [This] argument is important...' --Martin Wolf, Financial Times, 27th June 2013

'[A] hard-hitting, history-rich book.' --David Wilson, South China Morning Post, 30th June 2013
