Fusion Economics: How Pragmatism Is Changing the World (Hardcover)

Fusion Economics: How Pragmatism Is Changing the World By L. Brahm Cover Image


The current international financial system has created a huge gap between the wealthy and the rest. Grounded and straightforward in his approach, Brahm calls for a turn away from economic systems dangerously steeped in ideology and stymied by politics, outlining a new global consensus based on pragmatism, common sense, and grass-roots realities.
