Dambisa Moyo

Why democracy is failing to increase economic growth and how to fix it

In her new book, Edge of Chaos, Dambisa Moyo sets out the new political and economic challenges facing the world, and the specific, radical solutions needed to resolve these issues and reignite global growth.

She offers a radical menu of ten ways to improve democracy, making it better able to address the range of headwinds that the global economy faces – including technology and the prospects of a jobless underclass, demographic shifts, gapping income inequality, an unsustainable debt burden, natural resource scarcity and declining productivity – and deliver greater economic growth and prosperity.
