Product Description

The bestselling author of Crisis Economics argues that we are heading toward the worst economic catastrophe of our lifetimes, unless we can defend against ten terrifying threats.

Renowned economist Nouriel Roubini was nicknamed "Dr. Doom," until his prediction of the 2008 housing crisis and Great Recession came true - when it was too late. Now he is back with a much scarier prediction, one that we ignore at our peril. There are no fewer than ten overlapping, interconnected threats that are so serious, he calls them Megathreats. From the worst debt crisis the world has ever seen, to governments pumping out too much money, to borders that are blocked to workers and to many shipments of goods, to the rise of a new superpower competition between China and the U.S., to climate change that strikes directly at our most populated cities, we are facing not one, not two, but ten causes of disaster. There is a slight chance we can avoid them, if we come to our senses - but we must act now.

In the 1970s, the U.S. faced stagflation: high rates of inflation combined with stagnant employment and growth. Today, we are heading toward a Great Stagflation that will make the 1970s look like a walk in the park.

From the economist who predicted the 2008 crash, Megathreats outlines the new risks in our uncharted future and how we deal with them.Roubini has surpassed even his high standards: the ten Megathreats he details are as scary as they are plausible. Forewarned is forearmed. Read and pay attentionRoubini cuts to the real problems like a hot knife through butter with a clarity of mind that is rare among economists. I have never seen a more lucid and nuanced account of our financial condition. Not only will the reader be better off after reading this book, but the world will be a better placeA tour de force . . . This clever and timely analysis powerfully illustrates how the combination of flawed human judgment, faulty policies, and a collective disregard of natural constraints now confronts us with perils whose reach goes well beyond just our generation. Ignore this book at your own perilThe choice is clear: either we overcome deep-rooted political and geopolitical barriers to mount an adequate collective response (my preference!), or we sleepwalk into a new era of chaos and upheaval. A timely and compelling read, MegaThreats is a wake-up call for humanityCalm, clear-headed and possibly prescient . . . a bracing assessment of long-term risks to the global economy. Dark, perhaps, but brilliant, for sureIf recent history has taught us one thing, it is that Black Swan events happen - and more frequently than we expect. Nouriel Roubini describes the most threatening swans and how we can avoid being pecked to death . . . This is not an optimistic forecast, but it is a sobering and necessary oneThe economist who predicted the 2008 recession is looking around the corner to anticipate the next major crises. Dr. Doom isn't here to scare you-his goal is to prepare you. The better you are at anticipating problems, the better positioned you become to prevent them and solve them[Roubini] has seen a pattern in the world and he has a warning for the rest of usHow bad might the future be? One can rely on Nouriel Roubini to give the most plausible answer to that question. In this case, he surpasses his own high standards of doomsaying. People who like horror films will love this book
