The Tyranny of Growth is a modern epic that exposes the lie of economic growth. It provocatively recounts how the 2008 global financial meltdown and  COVID-19 pandemic have become the leading cause of governments’ and multilateral institutions’ global spectacular failure. It brilliantly explains how a single number – GDP – came to have such bewildering power over our lives, despite its ruinous consequences. But ultimately the book strives to illuminate a new way of imagining the world.
