SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL WRITING 2019

'A near miracle' Ha-Joon Chang, author of 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

According to the economy, we have never been wealthier or happier. So why doesn't it feel that way? The Growth Delusion explores how we prioritise growth maximisation without stopping to think about the costs. So much of what is important to our well-being, from safe streets to sound minds, lies outside the purview of statistics. In a book that is both thought-provoking and entertaining, David Pilling argues that our steadfast loyalty to growth is informing misguided policies, and proposes different criteria for measuring our success.
