“Can our political and economic systems be flexible enough to protect us against major shocks but also allow us to bounce back afterwards? Markus K. Brunnermeier approaches this question with originality and depth. As the world emerges from the pandemic and prepares for more such shocks, this fascinating book could not be more timely or valuable.“- ARVIND SUBRAMANIANformer chief economic adviser to the government of India
Author Markus Brunnermeier says, “The resilient society requires an evolution of strategic thinking. Instead of simply avoiding risks or blocking shocks, building resilience is a more effective way to cope with shocks. It is essential to avoid resilience inhibitors such as pitfalls, negative feedback loops and tipping points. The book outlines well-reasoned resilience strategies for all policy and business areas that help make our societies more resilient to Covid and other shocks.”
Siddhesh InamdarEditor-in-Chief, HarperCollins India, says: “As countries around the world begin to rebuild their societies and economies after two years of the Covid pandemic, The resilient society is a timely book by a world-renowned economist on what they should do to fortify themselves for more such unexpected shocks in the future. FinancialTimes called it one of the best economics books of the year; it has received endorsements from Nobel laureates as well as widely respected figures in India and around the world. It is a book that we are proud to publish under our prestigious Harper Business brand and hope it will make a significant contribution to shaping a post-Covid world.”
