GRAVE NEW WORLD


GRAVE NEW WORLD

STEPHEN D. KING    Book Number: 86575    Product format: Hardback

Sub-titled 'The End of Globalisation, The Return of History', the book asks why globalisation is being rejected. What will a world ruled by rival states with conflicting aims look like and will the pursuit of nationalist agendas result in a race to the bottom? Renowned economist Stephen D. King answers these questions in his provocative new book and what these eventualities will mean for prosperity, peace and the global economic order. Globalisation, long considered to be the best route to economic prosperity, is not inevitable. An approach built on the principals of free trade, since the 1980s opened capital markets is beginning to fracture. With disappointing growth rates across the Western world, nations are no longer willing to sacrifice national interests for global wealth. Nor are their leaders able or willing to sell the idea of pursuing a global agenda of prosperity to their citizens and a them-and-us political narrative emerges; isolationism and protectionism are making an unwelcome return. Combining historical analysis with current affairs including both Brexit and Donald Trump's victory in 2016, King argues that a rejection of globalisation and a return to 'autarky' will risk economic and political conflict. "His vital historical perspective provides a unique contribution to current debates." Chapters include False Prophets Harsh Truths, The Spirit of Elitism, and The Dark Side of Technology. 290pp.
