The Spectre at the Feast PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Spectre at the Feast free pdf After a long feast of prosperity in the western world, the crisis in the financial markets has conjured up an old spectre - the spectre of capitalist crisis, which many thought had been finally exorcised. On past experience, a full-blown capitalist crisis would bring with it the threat of slump, collapse, polarisation, conflict, and even war, spreading to all parts of the global economy - hence the great efforts being made to contain the present downturn. This important new book by a leading authority sets the financial crisis of 2007/8 in historical context and assesses its global consequences, how far it might go, and what is to be done.
