Living on thin air: the new economy
'A crucially inspired and inspiring roadmap...At times scary (as your old certainties crumble under the truth of his argument) and at other times pulse-racing (the grand, new possibilities), this is a vital book. It charts the true sources of economic power in this new world and no politician should be without it' Jonathan Myerson,Independent 'The reality of the knowledge economy and globalisation is carefully explored by Charles Leadbeater...[he] captures well the helplessness that people feel when unregulated, global markets become dysfunctional...Where Leadbeater really scores...is in recognising that the social, ethical and organisational structures - around which our commerce and society are based - must shift to adjust to the new economy' Alex Brummer,Guardian
