Understanding the Global Economy names the first step in coping with or transforming the flawed global ethics. To that end, the author explains the economic theory, social science, and thought that formed the basis of the global system. Applied to the sense of our current crisis, this book shows the ethics and forces that make the global market work as it does and how it fails. It presents a balance of the historical basis for global markets with the relevant economic theories, ethics, ideology, inclusive research of all the leading scholars, the current issues of the crisis, and the failed solutions. Through the intellectual background with an expose of the current crisis, the author leads us to a seemingly ironic prescription, which he lives—the willing, caring heart of humanity that knows no bounds. The book presents the solution by an analysis of the economic history from antiquity through the present, observations and research of the likely solutions, and decades of proactive work to enact the lasting solution.
