From the economist who predicted the 2008 crash, Megathreats outlines the new risks in our uncharted future and how we deal with them.


We are heading towards the worst economic catastrophe of our lifetimes - unless we can defend against ten terrifying threats.

World renowned economist Nouriel Roubini was nicknamed Dr. Doom until his warnings of the 2008 housing crisis and Great Financial Crisis came true - when it was too late. Now he's back with much scarier predictions, ones that we ignore at our peril. There are no fewer than ten overlapping, interconnected threats that are so serious Roubini describes them as megathreats - with each one potentially amplifying the others. From the worst debt crisis the world has ever seen, to governments pumping out too much money and causing inflation, to borders that are blocked to workers and many shipments of goods, to the rise of a new superpower competition between China and the US, to pandemics and climate change that strike directly at our most populated cities, to the threat to jobs coming from AI, we are facing not one, not two, but ten causes of disaster.

Today, we are heading towards a Great Stagflation that will make the 1970s look moderate. There is a slight chance we can avoid it, if we come to our senses - but we must act now.

Review

Roubini has surpassed even his high standards: the ten Megathreats he details are as scary as they are plausible. Forewarned is forearmed. Read and pay attention -- Martin Wolf

Roubini cuts to the real problems like a hot knife through butter with a clarity of mind that is rare among economists. I have never seen a more lucid and nuanced account of our financial condition. Not only will the reader be better off after reading this book, but the world will be a better place -- Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of THE BLACK SWAN

A tour de force . . . This clever and timely analysis powerfully illustrates how the combination of flawed human judgment, faulty policies, and a collective disregard of natural constraints now confronts us with perils whose reach goes well beyond just our generation. Ignore this book at your own peril -- Mohamed El-Erian

The choice is clear: either we overcome deep-rooted political and geopolitical barriers to mount an adequate collective response (my preference!), or we sleepwalk into a new era of chaos and upheaval. A timely and compelling read, 
MegaThreats is a wake-up call for humanity -- Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group and author of THE POWER OF CRISIS

Calm, clear-headed and possibly prescient . . . a bracing assessment of long-term risks to the global economy. Dark, perhaps, but brilliant, for sure -- Kenneth Rogoff, co-author of THIS TIME IS DIFFERENT

If recent history has taught us one thing, it is that Black Swan events happen - and more frequently than we expect. Nouriel Roubini describes the most threatening swans and how we can avoid being pecked to death . . . This is not an optimistic forecast, but it is a sobering and necessary one -- Barry Eichengreen, George C. Pardee & Helen N. Pardee Chair and Distinguished Professor of Economics and Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
