Building on the impressive first edition, this revised and updated book examines a wide range of highly topical issues. Dr Panic questions whether economic prosperity, social wellbeing and peace are sustainable given existing national attitudes, institutions and policies, and explores the changes needed to prevent another global economic collapse.
