Description

'A radical book that speaks out accessibly' BONO 'Indispensable ... This is the essential handbook' CHRISTINE LAGARDE 'A remarkably good read'
GILLIAN TETT, Financial Times 'This assault on the modern free market is a landmark achievement'
WILL HUTTON, Observer

What do you value? Why is it that often the things we value the most - from frontline nurses to the natural environment to keeping children well fed and educated - seem of little importance to economic markets?

In Value(s) , one of the great economic thinkers of our time examines how economic value and social values became blurred, how we went from living in a market economy to a market society, and how to rethink and rebuild before it's too late. The book will help arm the best in business, finance and government, and disarm the worst.

During his time as a G7 central banker and seven years spent as Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney witnessed the collapse of public trust in elites, globalisation, and technology; the challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution and the existential threat of the growing climate emergency. Drawing on a truly international perspective to our greatest problems, this book sets out a framework for the change needed for an economic and social renaissance in a post-Covid world. Embedding the values of sustainability, solidarity and responsibility into all decision-making is integral to his argument for how we can channel the dynamism of the market to turn intractable problems into enormous opportunities. His deeply researched and forward-looking manifesto goes to the heart of what we've got wrong in the past and offers action plans to set it right for individuals, businesses, investors and governments.

In short, Value(s) sets out how we can build a better world for all. It is a book that offers achievable solutions to global problems, building a future fit for our children, grandchildren and generations to come. 'The ten pages where he takes down routine market fables are worth the price of the book alone.' writes Will Hutton.
