I have not known until I write this sentence that the author was a Nobel Prize winner. Sadly enough, I think this book looks like a confession how modern economy has ruined the world economy in the name of economy.
Maybe it is high time to think again if the current inflation-based economy is the right way. If development is over and everything including the number of population gets saturated. Interests may not mean much. Not that we need to abandon money, but that we need to rethink what money should represent: the value.
This book is a good anecdote of today’s inequality of the world. A good starting place to learn what the problems are.
