DESCRIPTION

From one of many world’s main economists, a grand narrative of the century that made us richer than ever, but left us unhappy  Earlier than 1870, humanity lived in dire poverty, with a gradual crawl of invention offset by a rising inhabitants. Then got here an important shift: invention sprinted ahead, doubling our technological capabilities every technology and totally remodeling the economic system many times. Our ancestors would have presumed we might have used such powers to construct utopia. However it was not so. When 1870-2010 ended, the world as a substitute noticed international warming; financial despair, uncertainty, and inequality; and broad rejection of the established order. Economist Brad DeLong’s Slouching In the direction of Utopia tells the story of how this unprecedented explosion of fabric wealth occurred, the way it reworked the globe, and why it didn’t ship us to utopia. Of exceptional breadth and ambition, it reveals the final century to have been much less a march of progress than a slouch in the appropriate route.
