DR PIPPA MALMGREN Signals How Everyday Signs Can Help Us Navigate the World’s Turbulent Economy
The story of the world economy, told in the language of everyday objects and occurrences.
In Signals, Dr Pippa Malmgren reveals how our daily lives are informed and affected by the on-going battle, created by central bankers, between inflation and deflation. As the cost of living for consumers continues to rise while their income still falls, a pattern is created that breaks the vital social contracts between citizens and their governments. If growth and innovation present the only solutions, the key question becomes whether governments are hostile or hospitable to these efforts. With its wonderful range of signals, from a Vogue magazine cover to a protest by a Tibetan monk, Signals demonstrates that although we can’t predict the future of the world economy, we can prepare.
Dr Pippa Malmgren, former presidential advisor, was the chief currency strategist at bankers Trust and the Deputy Head of Global Strategy at UbS. She now serves on boards at MIT, Indiana University and the Ditchley Foundation and is a frequent guest on the bbC, including Newsnight and the Today programme.
