Niall Ferguson gives an excellent analysis of the factors playing into the problems of todays modern socities of the West. Even though I would like to remain a cautious optimist about the future, if we believe the professor we will, especially in the developed part of the world, be in for a tough ride in the years to come. Too many things are in flux at the same time, and too little will among general population, politicians and the ruling elite to take the necessary actions needed to change course of future history. Due to inappropriate actions and lack of taking the right actions we have set ourselves on a difficult path.

middle of the pack due to length
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
What does Paul Slack bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
If you could give The Great Degeneration a new subtitle, what would it be?
How Institutions affect a civilization.
I didn't really find the reasons why they decay.
More of a case as to the effect.
Insightful book though.
Any additional comments?
Niall Ferguson is good at economic history. No doubt.
