• Collier is <b>one of the UK's most distinguished economists</b>. In this important book, he analyses what has gone wrong with contemporary capitalism, focusing on the growing divide between the educated and the less educated and between booming metropolis and the declining provinces. Rejecting the illusions of the ideologues and the populists, he puts forward <b>pragmatic, provocative and perceptive</b> ways to deliver widely shared prosperity, by restoring an ethical basis to our national politics, companies and families.
