The components that brought on the worldwide monetary situation of 2008 haven't been addressed, notes Satyajit Das during this brilliantly clear-eyed account of the nation of the realm economic system. international debt this present day is greater than it was once earlier than the predicament. the massive banks, bailed out by means of taxpayers on the top of the GFC, are actually larger than ever, through an extraordinary forty in keeping with cent. the matter of unfunded and unsustainable welfare entitlements is still unresolved.
