Vincent Lannoye was born in the US and grew up in Belgium in an industrial family, which sparked his curiosity to analyze and critique economics. An engineer with an MBA from Edhec France, today he works in high-tech in Silicon Valley. His past, his passion for economy, the lack of accessible works about the economic implications of the fight against global warming, and his monetary ideas, all have inspired him to write about economics.
Global warming: unsure plan of action
A first small step was agreed upon with the COP21 in 2015.
This first step is unambitious because nations are reluctant to rush decisively and punish their own economy with entrenched unemployment.
Post-2030, larger steps post-COP21 must happen.
All these steps must happen fast, as climate experts are ringing the alarm bell.
Parallel economies and their currencies:
Could parallel economies speed up the activity? Such parallel economies – often overlooked by economists – are explained through historical examples.
... and contain global warming:
If parallel economies can help, then the last chapter's Green-Market System could work. Would this System be too good to be true?
Money is the key to learning economics. "The History of Money for Understanding Economics" decrypt economics from antiquity to the present day, with readily accessible language.
Considering past monetary influences, Lannoye challenges the reader with a monetary innovation to speed up the economy (and finance a green economy).
