“The current environment of zero-cost money, concentrated bank power, and anaemic productive growth has coalesced not by accident or economic cycle but by wilful choice. Das warns that without significant change, the only possible future holds dire consequences for all but an elite few. His tone is as urgent as the problem. All central bankers, politicians, and citizens should heed his words.” Nomi Prins, author of Other People’s Money and All the Presidents’ Bankers “Written with passion and insight, and laden with facts, the book provides a clear explanation of the economic, social, and political issues that lie ahead, and the difficulty in solving them.” Jon Markman, Forbes columnist and president and publisher of Markman Capital Insight A Banquet of Consequences is an intricately researched, decisively written and devastating analysis of today’s economy. Satyajit Das connects disparate strands of a story, and in doing so delivers a damning critique of global economic policies of the last 50 years. He argues that governments and citizens of every political hue are now so addicted to growth and resistant to change, that a prolonged period of chronic stagnation, sustained by large infusions of monetary morphine and continuous interventions, or an unavoidable financial, political and social breakdown are the only possible outcomes.

Informed, impassioned, insightful and witty, Satyajit Das returns with a substantially updated edition of his 2015 classic. A Banquet of Consequences: RELOADED is the only book you need to understand how we got into our current economic, environmental and social mess – and how we might find our way out. For ordinary individuals, the goal of a steady job, a home of one's own, a comfortable retirement and better opportunities for their children is receding. In this brilliant, clear-eyed account, updated to include over 150 pages of new insights and analysis, Satyajit Das links past, present and future to show that it's not just our unrealistic expectations but poor choices that are to blame. The strategies after the Great Recession have failed, not least because such growth cannot continue indefinitely. The COVID-19 pandemic was merely the pin that pricked an ever-expanding bubble of fake prosperity and false hopes. It is the first trial of many to come. The solution – fundamental change – involves cost and is therefore ignored. Das explains why the ultimate adjustment, whether stretched out over time or in the form of another sudden collapse, will be life-changing. Essential reading for anyone concerned about the dire fate of the global economy, the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, the deepening environmental crisis and the alarming deterioration of our social fabric, A Banquet of Consequences: RELOADED is a ground-breaking book of our times, and a cautionary window into our future. An internationally respected commentator on financial markets, credited with predicting the Global Financial Crisis and featured in the 2010 Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job, Satyajit Das is our finest writer about the forces underlying society and the global economy.

On A Banquet of Consequences: "A moving story full of entertaining characters, experiences, conflicts and triumphs. Offered in a decidedly unpretentious and conversational style, the stories go well beyond the author's association with a famous rock & roll band." William Greenleaf, Greenleaf Literary Services, Inc. On the author's association with Creedence Clearwater Revival: "No one has told the Creedence story as eloquently." Russ Gary, CCR recording engineer, independent TV producer (Los Angeles area) On the business of drugs: ..". [This is] beyond good. I've never read a clearer, more graphic account of the mechanics of the dope trade." Bruce Anderson, Editor/Publisher The Anderson Valley Advertiser On Federal prison: "Colorful characters loom large on the page. Physical settings are vivid and detailed, and are smoothly woven into the memories, musings, and anecdotes." William Greenleaf, Greenleaf Literary Services, Inc. From the author: "My life story (first half), at once confessional, embarrassing, and proud. Irreverent in some places, humorous in others, a little drama here and there."

“Ms. George proves that the classiest crime writers are true novelists.”—The New York Times Award-winning author Elizabeth George gives us an early glimpse into the lives of Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, forensic scientist Simon Allcourt-St. James, and Lady Helen Clyde in a superlative mystery that is also a fascinating inquiry into the crimes of the heart. Lynley, the eighth earl of Asherton, has brought to Howenstow, his family home, the young woman he has asked to be his bride. But the savage murder of a local journalist is the catalyst for a lethal series of events that shatters the calm of a picturesque Cornwall village and embroils Lynley and St. James in a case far outside their jurisdiction—and a little too close to home. When a second death follows closely on the heels of the first, Lynley finds he can't help taking the investigation personally—because the evidence points to a killer within his own family. Praise for A Suitable Vengeance “Elizabeth George reigns as queen of the mystery genre. The Lynley books constitute the smartest, most gratifying complex and impassioned mystery series now being published.”—Entertainment Weekly “Ms. George can do it all, with style to spare.”—The Wall Street Journal “George goes to the head of the genre, with class.”—People
