    This audiobook is about young people between the ages of 15 to 25, their destructive path, and what we can do to save them! Everyone seems to be accusatory toward the youth and call them a lost generation. However, society may have forgotten that they have contributed to some of the trends that are witnessed among the youth - be it the church, parents, or the politicians. The moral debauchery among the youth cannot be talked about without mention of these things.

    The Shifts and the Shocks is not another detailed history of the crisis, but the most persuasive and complete account yet published of what the crisis should teach us about modern economies and economics. The audiobook identifies the origin of the crisis in the complex interaction between globalization, hugely destabilizing global imbalances and our dangerously fragile financial system.
