about

Throughout history, individual decisions have shaped the economic destinies of nations. No country's fate is determined simply by geography, history, religion, or natural resources. In False Economy, Alan Beattie tackles misconceptions about the modern world, looking back at history through economic binoculars, questioning various assumptions about Islam, Africa, corruption, government subsidies, and more. Wholly accessible, brilliantly argued, and full of surprises, it's not only a historical explanation of how the world got to its current point, but also a look at how our past affects our future.
As world trade editor of the Financial Times, Alan Beattie writes about economic globalization, trade, development, and aid. Before joining the Financial Times he was an economist at the Bank of England. He holds degrees in history and economics from the universities of Oxford and Cambridge respectively.
