Synopsis

This “decline of the West” prognosis, grounded in a study of the evolution of humanity, defines the natural laws on which societies rely for their viability. Synthesising insights from anthropology, evolutionary psychology and history, it exposes the cheating that caused the collapse of past civilisations and now threatens Western civilisation.

Author’s Biography

After a career as a Fleet Street investigative journalist, Harrison became a consultant to Russian academic and political bodies to help them implement a more equitable transition to a market economy. Subsequently he turned his attention to the failure of economic analysis and public policies in the market economies.
