Summary
"What causes rich countries to lose their way? Symptoms of decline are all around us today: slowing growth, crushing debts, increasing inequality, aging populations, antisocial behavior. But what exactly has gone wrong? The answer, Niall Ferguson argues ... is that our institutions--the intricate frameworks within which a society can flourish or fail--are degenerating"--Dust cover flap
Summary
An examination of institutional dysfunction in the Western world argues that such values as a free market and representative government are being compromised while future generations are inheriting unmanageable levels of debt
