About the Author

Paul Collier is the Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government. He is the author of The Bottom Billion, which won the Lionel Gelber Prize and the Arthur Ross Prize awarded by the Council on Foreign Relations, The Plundered Planet, Exodus and Refuge (with Alexander Betts).

Peter Noble is an experienced audiobook narrator. Born in South Africa, he was dragged by hippie musicians from his idyllic childhood, where he ran barefoot through rich and matted grass with his dog Bartok, to vegetarian communes from California to India via Lisbon, London, and Findhorn. He picked up a wide range of authentic local accents and character voices along the way.

Reviews

A leading economist...takes a hard look at today's economic and social inequalities and suggests ways to fix them by addressing flaws in capitalism itself. For both left-wing and right-wing readers.

-- "Library Journal"

A compelling and often scathingly witty last-ditch defense, seeking not to combine the best ideas of Left and Right, but to fix the damage they've done.

-- "Vulture"

Pragmatic, blunt-and optimistic.

-- "Economist (London)"

A powerful, bracing call for a return to New Deal ethics in the age of Trump and Brexit...[A] masterful blend of personal experience and the best thinking of diverse social scientists.
