- Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 37.00
The author argues that we should not be diverted by the East Asian 'meltdown', which is a predictable outcome of global dynamics.

They are the global crisis makers, who have convinced governments... more...

From Greece scrambling to meet Eurozone austerity measures to America?s sluggish job growth, there is every indication that the world has not recovered from the economic implosion of 2008.

As the world enjoyed the prosperity of an unparalleled boom, an economic earthquake was looming, and then struck abruptly. Bastions of finance collapsed, long-standing policy beliefs were abandoned, and governments charged into the rubble without time to watch their steps.
