People in a resilient society are able to bounce back from shocks, such as pandemics and economic crises. Lacking resilience, societies, families and individuals can reach tipping points from which they cannot recover.
The Resilient Society by Princeton University economist Markus Brunnermeier describes how individuals, institutions and nations can successfully navigate a dynamic, globalized economy filled with unknown risks. The author applies his macroeconomic insights to public health, innovation, public debt overhang, innovation, inequality, climate change and challenges to the global order, offering ground-breaking blueprints for the reconstruction of societies and economies in a post-Covid world.
Written for business leaders, economists, policymakers and politically interested citizens, the book argues that the concept of resilience can be a compass for developing a social contract that benefits all people.
