IN THIS SUMMARY

The recent financial crisis has caused many people to ask fundamental questions about the way the economy is organized and the way it fits in with the kind of society people want to live in. In The Economics of Enough, Diane Coyle discusses ways in which government policy and the actions of individuals and private companies can better serve society in the long term. Beyond the proximate impact of the 2008 economic crash, the developed world is also facing mounting pressure from the need to care for an aging population, the erosion of public trust in institutions, and, particularly in the United States and Great Britain, from growing economic inequality. Meanwhile, the entire world must determine how to deal with the threat of climate change.
