We live in a World which, though the origins are long, seems suddenly transformed by economic events way out of our control. In seeking stability, we must acknowledge the seismic scale of the challenge, and understand the devastating impact of global energy inefficiency. Every society, organisation, business, household and individual must put efficiency first - not just to save money and carbon and improve resilience, but to reduce the risk, or effect, of conflict.

THE EDGE is a very contemporary look at how the world has been transformed by recent economic events, focusing on climate change, the war in Ukraine, the Chinese economy and the challenges the world faces around inflation, energy, transport, fuel, imports etc. Written from an economist/investor's perspective, with lessons for pretty much every institution challenged by these developments, it is a timely and essential resource authored by a global expert with peerless connections, from major organisations to government insiders, from investors to energy corporations. It will help businesses and economies currently at the mercy of the markets to transition towards sustainability, productivity and prosperit, and help everyone understand the world in 2023.
