The global economy is in turmoil. What started as a financial crisis has become an economic one and it is now morphing into a political one too. As demand slumps and unemployment soars, trade is collapsing and protectionism is mounting. As fear and anger erupt into hostility towards all things foreign, Phillippe Legrain asks the question is globalisation at risk? And if so, can it and should it be saved? Drawing from the lessons learnt from the 1930s crash and the Asian crisis of the 1990s, Legrain looks to the future to reveal what opportunities this crisis could offer. As the future of the global economy hangs in the balance, Legrain investigates how we got here and what choices need to be made to create a fairer, richer and more stable global economy.
