The author describes the growth of European and US nations from the fifteenth century, explaining how they became the leading economics in the world. Then he goes on to show why today they are in decline with large disparities between rich and poor, increasing poverty, failing financial institutions, rising unemployment, the movement of skilled jobs to developing economies and more.
Unfortunately he sees political leaders of the developed countries in a cycle of continually trying and re-trying the same old failing policies to ‘fix’ the problem, whilst wealthy multi-national corporations continue become richer and more powerful. Bhaskar Sarkar has done some very good analysis and even makes suggestions as to how these nations might break the decline.

I love the concept for this book. Those money-grubbing back-stabbing Europeans sure had their way with America before it became a country.
And when America became a country, boy, we sure became just like them. This book will highlight some of the interesting aspects of that rise and change, and it's presented in a pretty good format too.
