How to Save Humanity: The Economy of Life
Why do we constantly need such precise predictions of the future? One of Europe’s greatest scholars, Jacques Attali, has been predicting events such as the current pandemic for some twenty years. This capacity to accurately see the future has made him an international leader in the academic community of the political economy. Jacques Attali once again gives us warnings of more impending crises, such as future pandemics, inequality, and climate change. Humanity is at risk of extinction.
He has concluded that about sixty percent of human productivity actually leads to our own destruction. The so-called 'Economy of Death' is comprised of incalculable activities from our everyday lives to modern technologies. How can we escape from the Economy of Death? Jacques Attali proposes a straightforward solution to help us transition to the Economy of Life. He suggests that rational altruism leads to a world that current and future generations can be optimistic about. Jacques Attali’s predictions can be a starting point to help us save humanity - and perhaps even help us find happiness and meaning in life.
President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (1991-1993) Adviser to the French Government President of the Positive Planet Foundation, formerly Planet Finance Head of Attali & Associates
Jacques Attali is a French economist and futurologist who has served as special advisor to French President Mitterand and as President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. He is also the President of the General Management Committee and the Supervisory Board of the Positive Planet Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to alleviate poverty. With a plethora of experiences as a professor, politician, and government official, he guides many international organizations with his extensive knowledge and insights.
He has also published Dictionnarie du 21e Siecle (Dictionary of the 21st Century) and other books with analyses and predictions of future society, giving him a greater platform and reputation as a futurologist. His foresight even allowed him to predict the onset of more pandemics decades before the current one. Called 'one of Europe's greatest scholars', Jacques Attali not only predicts our future but also suggests the best way to approach it.
