World-leading political economist Maja Gpel shows us how we can set the course for the future in times of upheaval, and why this concerns us all. The way we live is changing fundamentally. The status quo is crumbling, but there is still reason to hope. Drawing on the latest scientific research, Maja Gpel distils complex developments across the environment, the economy, politics, society, and technology, and reveals how we can use this knowledge for a better world. Great transformations in history were triggered by humans, and our window to the future is as open as never before. It is time that we each of us individually, but also society as a whole allowed ourselves to think anew, to dream, and to ask a radical question: who do we want to be? After her previous book, Rethinking Our World, eloquently untangled the chaotic world we live in, Maja Gpel now gives readers the tools and motivation needed to build the world we want to live in.

Were already there and, among other things, progress and capitalism as weve known them need to be reconfigured to create a fairer, less exploitative society. This sounds like a dire read, but its strangely upbeat and, using often telling examples, Gpel calmly makes her dramatic point. -- Steven Carroll * The Sydney Morning Herald * Praise for Rethinking Our World: Gpel rigorously analyses traditional theories of economic growth, privatisation, consumption, and the infallibility of the market she is skilfully bringing together ideas from psychology, economics, philosophy, science, and history to create a highly readable interdisciplinary summary of the crisis at hand Gpel reminds us that awareness is one of the first steps, and the knowledge and belief that business as usual is not an option can be a powerful place to start.

She is lucid, succinct, and avoids strident polemic. And she enforces her argument with compelling narratives. -- Jane Goodall * The Conversation * Praise for Rethinking Our World: Maja Gpels book is a successful attempt to pack human history from the evolution of Homo sapiens to Greta Thunberg, economic theory from Adam Smith to Thomas Piketty, environmental research and system criticism into a concise space in an entertaining read and she does it well. -- Jessica von Blazekovic * Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung *
