The Possible Futures series gathers together leading social scientists to address the significance of the global economic crisis in a series of short, accessible books. Each volume takes on the past, present, and future of this crisis, suggesting that it has an informative history, that the consequences could be much more basic than stock market declines, and that only fundamental changes—not fiscal band-aids—can head off future repetitions.
