From Italy's former minister of economy and finance, a provocative
and galvanizing jeremiad on the Euro crisis and the global economic
status quo. As Europe's debt crisis persists and the aftershocks of
the 2008 collapse hinder recovery across the globe, Giulio Tremonti
underscores the dangers that unchecked financial markets pose to
democracy, and explains what nations must do to protect their
autonomy. Condemning what he calls "marketism"--an insidious
ideology that puts the speculative financial market above all
else--Tremonti bemoans a world in which finance, not governments,
sets the rules and, as a result, determines political discourse.
But when finance fails, it is the people who must pay the price,
and not just economically. An instant and enduring bestseller in
Italy, Exit Strategy calls for sweeping changes in both policy and
mindset. Candid and critical as few politicians have been in the
aftermath of the crisis, Tremonti breaks down the systemic failures
of global finance and proposes a "New Alliance" between citizens
and governments to free politics from the thrall of the financial
markets, and put the people themselves back in control.
