9780300203776: Hard Times - The Divisive Toll of the Economic Slump
Présentation de l'éditeur :

After the financial implosion of 2008, the world sank into the deepest recession since the 1930s. Hard Times asks what this has done to two rich but vastly unequal societies: Britain and the United States. Exploiting an array of data and striking interviews with those affected, Tom Clark documents how misadventures in the towers of high finance cascaded down to the streets below. Everything from PTA membership to sales of playing cards dived during the Great Depression; this compelling book traces the Great Recession's path through our own times, uncovering a drop in life satisfaction, frayed community connections and changing patterns of suicide. In every case, the toll is greater in poor neighbourhoods, due not only to unemployment, but also to the precarious, unreliable jobs proliferating in the recovery. As austerity redoubles the hardship, the book s new analysis suggests scarring that will blight individual and family life for years to come. Over a third of a century, the gap between rich and poor has steadily widened; with the crisis, this economic divide has deepened into a societal schism. Public opinion has polarised in parallel, poisoning politics, and leaving the victims of recession divided and powerless. In more prosperous neighbourhoods the slump might soon be forgotten, but this urgent, authoritative book pulls the scales of complacency from our eyes.It cannot be missed by anyone who yearns for a healthier, happier and less divided tomorrow.

Revue de presse :

'If you want to know about the enduring damage that recessions can do to ordinary people in unequal societies, then read this book. Hard Times provides a unique combination of hard statistics and fascinating interviews with workers and families that were hit by the big slump. A must read.' --Thomas Piketty, author of 'Capital in the 21st Century'

'Hard Times by Tom Clark ought to be one of the books of the year.' --Nick Cohen, The Observer

'We all know the Great Recession was bad. But Tom Clark reveals just what 'bad' means to individual and families at the sharp end. Whether or not you agree with all the conclusions, you cannot ignore this meticulously-documented book.' --Chris Giles, Economics Editor, Financial Times

Description du livre Yale University Press, United States, 2014. Hardback. État : New. 236 x 166 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. An analysis of the enduring social costs of the post-2008 economic crisis 2008 was a watershed year for global finance. The banking system was eventually pulled back from the brink, but the world was saddled with the worst slump since the 1930s Depression, and millions were left unemployed. While numerous books have addressed the financial crisis, very little has been written about its social consequences. Journalist Tom Clark draws on the research of a transatlantic team led by Professors Anthony Heath and Robert D. Putnam to determine the great recession s toll on individuals, families, and community bonds in the United States and the United Kingdom. The ubiquitous metaphor of the crisis has been an all-encompassing financial storm, but Clark argues that the data tracks the narrow path of a tornado-destroying some neighborhoods while leaving others largely untouched. In our vastly unequal societies, disproportionate suffering is being meted out to the poor-and the book s new analysis suggests that the scars left by unemployment and poverty will linger long after the economy recovers.Politicians on both sides of the Atlantic have shown more interest in exploiting the divisions of opinion ushered in by the slump than in grappling with these problems. But this hard-hitting analysis provides a wake-up call that all should heed. N° de réf. du libraire POW9780300203776
