Canadian economist and bestselling author Jeff Rubin presents a provocative account of how the middle class got stuck with the bill for globalization and how the blowback—from Brexit to Trump to populist Europe—will change the developed world.
Jeff Rubin is a world-leading expert on trade and energy and recently served as a senior fellow at the Centre for International Governance founded by Jim Balsillie. Former CIBC World Markets chief economist, Rubin’s first book Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller (2009) was an international bestseller and won the National Business Book Award. He followed it up with two more bestselling books, The End of Growth (2012) and The Carbon Bubble (2015). His new book The Expendables is an exhilaratingly fresh perspective that is at once humane and irascible, fearless and rigorous, and most importantly, timely. GDP is growing, the stock market is up and unemployment is down, but the surprise of the book is that even the good news is good for only one percent of us.
