  • From world renowned economist Paul Collier, a candid diagnosis of the failures of capitalism and a pragmatic and realistic vision for how we can repair it.Deep new rifts are tearing apart the fabric of the United States and other Western societies thriving cities versus rural counties, the highly skilled elite versus the less educated, wealthy versus developing countries From world renowned economist Paul Collier, a candid diagnosis of the failures of capitalism and a pragmatic and realistic vision for how we can repair it.Deep new rifts are tearing apart the fabric of the United States and other Western societies thriving cities versus rural counties, the highly skilled elite versus the less educated, wealthy versus developing countries As these divides deepen, we have lost the sense of ethical obligation to others that was crucial to the rise of post war social democracy So far these rifts have been answered only by the revivalist ideologies of populism and socialism, leading to the seismic upheavals of Trump, Brexit, and the return of the far right in Germany We have heard many critiques of capitalism but no one has laid out a realistic way to fix it, until now.In a passionate and polemical book, celebrated economist Paul Collier outlines brilliantly original and ethical ways of healing these rifts economic, social and cultural with the cool head of pragmatism, rather than the fervor of ideological revivalism He reveals how he has personally lived across these three divides, moving from working class Sheffield to hyper competitive Oxford, and working between Britain and Africa, and acknowledges some of the failings of his profession.Drawing on his own solutions as well as ideas from some of the world s most distinguished social scientists, he shows us how to save cap

    • This is a wonderful book, even better than I expected The author is a respected and well published Oxford economist The intent of the book is to provide a thoughtful overview of the problems facing global capitalism and even offer some possible fixes, perhaps in conjunction with his retirement thoughts The result is a complex and well done integration of economics, politics, history, philosophy, ethics, and culture that spans continents and crosses multiple levels of analysis with ease All o Thi [...]


    • What Oxford professor Paul Collier has written here is not only a very involved work of economics but also a deeply felt expression of ethics surrounding the current socio political climate and how that has tainted and marginalized rational discussion of purely economic issues He frames the idea of confronting the new anxieties surrounding capitalism and within the world s most successful capitalist countries as Restoring Ethics operating at the State, Firm, Family, and WorldRestoring the Inc Wh [...]
