The End of Progress free pdf A cold, hard look at how modern economics has failed us and why we need a new measure of progress

Modern economics has fallen short. It has widened the gap between rich and poor. It has not allocated the world's resources fairly. It has brought the West to the brink of financial ruin. It has placed short-term gain before long-term progress. And it has made us focus on the individual, not the society. The end result is a worldwide financial crisis of epic proportions and a planet being scraped clean of the resources needed by future generations, and things are only getting worse. In The End of Progress: How Modern Economics Has Failed Us popular economist Graeme Maxton looks at what went wrong, and what we can do to get ourselves back on track.

During the Age of Enlightenment society flourished, propelled by the wonder of new discoveries, radical ideas for economic and social development, and a sense that we all had a responsibility to improve our world. It's time to get back to those ideals, step back and examine our values, and work out what humankind really needs. * Presents a chilling look at our current financial system along with a compelling argument for what we need to change * Argues for new measures of progress that emphasize what really matters, not personal greed * Offers a timely look at our broken society and where we're headed next

A thought-provoking, informative book, The End of Progress looks at what got us into our present mess, and shines light onto the road ahead.
