Summary
If you are part of the 99% – and there is a 99% chance that you are – then you are one of the first generation in living memory who can expect to be poorer than your parents, even as the economy continues to grow. And you could be quite a lot poorer. If we continue as we are going, the civilisation we enjoy today will not last until 2050. Buying their own house is a distant dream for most young people; their wages are failing to keep pace with inflation; and more and more people are having to rely on food banks. Our age is one of chronic anxiety. If the economy is doing so well, how can most people not be doing well? If the pie is growing, why aren't we all getting bigger slices? This book shows what we, the 99%, can do to end mass impoverishment and build a society worth living in: an age of abundance, in which everyone benefits
Summary
We are looking at the first generation in living memory who can expect to be poorer than their parents, even as the economy continues to grow. This is unprecedented. And they could be quite a lot poorer. If we continue as we are going, the civilisation we enjoy today will not last until 2050. The early signs are already here. In 2017, we read that the economy was booming and stock markets were at an all-time high, yet at the same time we heard that wages were not keeping pace with inflation and food-banks had more 'customers' than ever before. If the economy is doing so well, how can most people not be doing well? If the pie is growing, why aren't we all getting bigger slices? This is what we can do to change this state of affairs.
