"In this international best seller, world-renowned economist and political adviser Jacques Attali predicts how our world will look not only in the coming decades but a century from now. Will there be global chaos, dominated by terrorists, pirates, dictators, devastating droughts, and rising floodwaters? Or will the planet be blessed with peace, prosperity, and greater freedom for mankind?" "While many unpredictable factors could change the course and timing of events, Attali argues that history flows in a single, stubborn direction that no upheaval, however momentous, can permanently deflect. Analyzing the past in order to predict the future, he pinpoints three political orders in human history: the ritual order, in which religious powers dominate; the imperial order, in which the military powers hold sway; and the mercantile order, in which the paramount group is the one that controls the economy. Within the last named, the author makes a case that there have been nine distinct "cores," starting around 1200, each with its world center of power and prestige, and predicts what the tenth will be by the dawn of the next century." "Never, he states, has the world offered more promise for the future yet been more fraught with potential dangers. How we respond to the crises and opportunities that await us will determine what land of world we will bequeath our children and grandchildren."--BOOK JACKET

La crise, et après? by Jacques Attali ( Book )
20 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in French and English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How did we come to this? Everything seemed to be going well, the world's economic growth was the fastest ever in history; everything led us to believe that this was going to continue, all around the world, thanks to abundant savings and outstanding technical progress. Then, without any warning, we found ourselves at the dawn of the most serious global recession for eighty years. On the face of it, nothing seemed to happen between these two events, except that some American families found themselves unable to continue to repay their mortgages. The goal of this book is to explain this mystery as simply as possible, with a view to solving it, in order to prevent the crisis from deteriorating into a worldwide political catastrophe and to insure that it never happens again
