Cancel the Apocalypse

15 Feb 2013

From bad banks to global warming, the world sometimes looks as if it is falling apart. But what if the only things holding us back are a lack of imagination and a surplus of old orthodoxies? 

Andrew Simms’ new book Cancel the Apocalypse is a radical look at current crises, a manifesto for how we can put things right. As a highly influential author and a leading figure in the New Economics Foundation, Simms leads debate around the economic and climatic issues we face today. Talking about his new book, he shows us how we might avoid meltdown after all.
