Bleakonomics: A Heartwarming Introduction to Financial Catastrophe, the Jobs Crisis.....

by Rob Larson
£16.99   paperback  Pluto Press (2012)

Bleakonomics: A Heartwarming Introduction to Financial Catastrophe, the Jobs Crisis..... by Rob Larson Bleakonomics is a short and darkly humorous guide to the three great crises plaguing today's world: environmental degradation, social conflict in the age of austerity and financial instability.
 
Written for anyone who is wondering how we’ve come to this point, Rob Larson holds mainstream economic theory up against the grim reality of a planet in meltdown. He looks at scientists’ conclusions about climate change, the business world’s opinions about its own power, and reveals the fingerprints of finance on American elections.
 
With a unique and engaging approach to each crucial subject, students, academics and activists will find a lot to appreciate in this quiet call-to-arms for a saner and more stable world.
