Bringing his signature insight and expertise, the controversial economist Ravi Batra takes on a host of problems facing the world economy, including the oil and housing bubbles, falling minimum wages, corporate scandals, gross ethical lapses, the rise of celebrity economists at the Federal Reserve and elsewhere, and political crises of all kinds. He is unflinching in his criticism of the global economic elites and the suffering and deprivation they have caused in the lives of ordinary men and women. At the same time, he also offers an expansive, optimistic vision of how the international community can overcome the many challenges before it and bring about something historically unprecedented: true global economic prosperity.

Excellent book. I highly recommend to read it as the author brings the human history patterns cycles behavior to understand specific phases of social economic situations. Our present is the result of our past, therefore our future represents a straight line of our current present as this book explains amazingly !!! Great book!!!!
