In this powerful and sometimes terrifying work Attali analyses the past, pinpointing nine distinct periods of human history, each with its world centre of power and prestige, and predicts what the 10th will bring by the end of this century. He foresees the disappearance of individual countries and the dominance of a world government with democracy prevailing. However, the ultimate burning question is: Will we leave our children a world that is not only viable but better, or will we bequeath to them a planet that will be a living hell?
