Written by an economist, the book provides a unique perspective into the study of this emotionally-charged issue. It shows that economic analysis can shed light on some of the roots of persistent poverty and may point to its potential solution.

The Age of Stagnation: Why Perpetual Growth is Unattainable and the Global Economy is in Peril

The Age of Stagnation: Why Perpetual Growth is Unattainable and the Global Economy is in Peril by Satyajit DasThe global economy is entering an era of protracted stagnation, similar to what Japan has experienced for over a decade.

The author challenges the assumption that growth can be perpetual and questions the ability of political leaders to enact the tough structural changes needed. He is particularly critical of the "easy money" approach to dealing with the great recession...

Understanding the Growth Slowdown

Understanding the Growth Slowdown by Brink LindseyCompanies and industries rise and fall...fortunes are made and lost...jobs are created and destroyed by the millions. These are the headline-grabbing dramas of modern economic life. But, residing beneath the booms and busts is a more deeply consequential drama: the long-term growth of real gross domestic product (GDP). Often only apparent years after happening, shifts in long term growth rates are as momentous as they are subtle.
This new ebook examines the gathering evidence, in the wake of the great recession of 2008, that we are in the midst of one of these profound shifts. The disappointing...
