It points at the existence of hitherto unrecognized long-term periods, each ending in a major crisis: the Great Depression of the 1930s and the stagflation of the 1970s, and explains their deeper long-term causes. Understanding the forces that have driven the economy allows the author to make sensible but surprising forecasts up to 2100: a Mega Depression in the late 2020s and zero economic growth in the richest nations within a few decades. It also forecasts radical global power shifts. The main text does not require any advanced knowledge of economics. The details and complex evidence underpinning this work are contained in comprehensive Appendices. Note that the author is making no profit on this book.< Less

The paradigm shift came when Elisabeth Mann Borgese – founder of the International Ocean Institute – viewed the situation from the seaward side, where a sustainable ocean economy integrates with and is inclusive of the Green Economy.
