Publisher's Summary

Wicked-smart Briana Ruiz and Jack McCullough meet in grad school at the University of Texas at Austin. They find themselves conflicted about the current state of economic theory, as well as with each other. There is a disconnect between economics and ecosystems that continues to be unresolved by theory and by public policy discussions at the highest levels.

Nearing graduation, Briana must decide whether to accept an offer from Parkus Corporation, a company that seems leading edge, but may be engaging in questionable environmental practices. She begins work on a mathematical model - an entropy model which incorporates variables economists have failed to consider - in order to make more accurate predictions.

The first wave of environmental anomalies begins, which briefly increases public awareness about the unsustainability of lifestyles in the United States and the developed world.

Years later, after completing their doctorates, Briana and Jack secure federal government research positions tracking environmental incidents and establishing the first comprehensive system of national accounts to fully allocate costs across industry sectors.

Briana’s work brings her and Jack directly into conflict with the Federal Reserve, the White House and the economics’ establishment. Once again, environmental anomalies begin to reoccur throughout the world. This time, as they increase in frequency, the stakes get higher. The clash between economics and ecosystems, between economic theory and public policy are taking place in real time, and the stage is set for the next great transition of the human species - whether for good or ill.

Time is running out, and Washington doesn’t want to hear about it, despite the fact that the bubbles keep getting bigger, and the crashes keep getting worse. As financial systems and ecosystems approach a simultaneous peak, will anyone listen before it’s too late to stop the collapse?
