Signals: How Everyday Signs Can Help Us Navigate the World's Turbulent Economy

Drawing on a wonderful range of examples—from magazine covers and supermarkets to public protests—Signals is the fascinating story of the world economy told in the language of everyday objects, places, and events. Malmgren explains why the size of chocolate bars, steaks, and apartments are shrinking, and why the increasing near misses between America's spy planes and the fighter jets of China and Russia are no coincidence. Written with refreshing clarity, Signals shows us who is already building the future and how to be part of it.

  • Pippa Malmgren argues that by being alert to the many signals around us, we can be empowered to deal with the varied troubles and treasures the world economy inevitably brings.

  • Malmgren reveals how our daily lives are affected by the ongoing battle, created by central bankers, between inflation and deflation.

  • Signals demonstrate that although we can't predict the future of the world economy, we can better prepare ourselves for it.
