“The world faces a number of challenges, from persistent inequality and an ageing of population to climate change and the rise of the robot. In this innovative, accessible, and persuasive book, Maxton and Randers show that we don’t need revolutionary changes to meet these challenges. They tell us how big changes can be – indeed, can only be – achieved through a set of reforms that are moderate enough to be politically feasible in the short run. An essential guide to those who want to change the world for the better – and for certain.”
