9780571307784: The Consolations of Economics: How We Will All Benefit from the New World Order

Gerard Lyons is a leading international economist who spent nearly thirty years working in the City. In this surprising take on the changing global economy, he explains why we're better off than we think. Over the last quarter-century he has been ahead of the game in predicting the major economic trends: the financial crisis, challenges in the euro zone, Japan's lost decade, low interest rates and the shift in the balance of power to China and other countries that we now take as a given. Now he predicts that in the next twenty years the world economy will enjoy one of its strongest periods of growth ever. The pace of change and catch-up potential across the globe is huge. While the West's share in the global economic cake may be relatively smaller, it will be a bigger amount of cake than before. Life expectancy, income and educational standards will rise. The trend in China and India will be up - despite set-backs along the way. There are global risks - corruption, environmental damage, energy demand, population growth - but all have solutions. The Consolations of Economics is a lucid and accessible expert's attempt to look objectively at the changing global economy - what is happening and what it means. He explores all the aspects and implications of this economic shift of the balance of power and shows how we can embrace change, rather than hide from it. The results are fascinating, refreshing - and unusually cheering.
