So you didn't read the work of the author.

You were triggered by the recommendation the publisher used to package the book.

Did the fonts and graphics meet with your approval?

About how fair, objective, or nuanced would you say your comment is?

The work of the author is solid and interesting if you are interested in getting a long-run historical view of how social institutions lag behind technological change. The world changes, social institutions are slow to adapt, some folks are even slower to adapt.

Took this book back to library as soon as I opened the first page. Christine Lagarde recommending this book was enough to make me sick. Christine Lagarde who: Was found guilty of fraud by European courts and should have gone to jail but did not.
Christine Lagarde who insulted Greek citizens when she called them "tax cheats ".
Christine Lagarde whose home was raided by anti corruption police investigating her near $400 million pay-off of a prominent Nicolas Sarkozy supporter when she was French finance minister.
Christine Lagarde who showed up in New York to attend an IMF meeting wearing 9500 Euro's worth of clothing, shoes, handbags etc while she tells the poor they will have to pay more taxes and can't retire at 65.
No, sorry this author is blinded by the light and obviously confused.
