From an internationally acclaimed economist comes a provocative call to jump-start economic growth by aggressively overhauling liberal democracy.

Around the world, people who are angry at stagnant wages and growing inequality have rebelled against established governments and turned to political extremes. Liberal democracy, history’s greatest engine of growth, now struggles to overcome unprecedented economic headwinds—from aging populations to scarce resources to unsustainable debt burdens. Hobbled by short-term thinking and ideological dogma, democracies risk falling prey to nationalism and protectionism that will deliver declining living standards.

In Edge of Chaos, Dambisa Moyo shows why economic growth is essential to global stability and why liberal democracies are failing to produce it today. Rather than turning away from democracy, she argues, we must fundamentally reform it. Edge of Chaos presents a radical blueprint for change in order to galvanize growth and ensure the survival of democracy in the twenty-first century.

Quotes & Awards

  • Edge of Chaos is intensely focused in its purpose and forthright in its findings. It has narrative drive; it is not self-indulgent or too long; and it uses statistics and other factual evidence from wide-ranging sources to powerful polemical effect.”

    Literary Review

  • “Economist Moyo takes on thorny questions of economic and political stagnation…The author’s program of remedy is provocative and of much interest to advocates of growth. Moyo clearly identifies systemic problems that the democracies—or what’s left of them—would do well to address.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Since the 2008 financial crisis, most of the world hasn’t exactly been living large. Economist Moyo has some ideas on how to change that…An intriguing partnership of economic policy and political reforms for solving stagnating economic growth in the West.”
