內容簡介


一個複雜難懂、嚴肅卻又重要的議題,作者融會貫通,透過漫畫,輕易地,淺白地,向讀者分析這個全球經濟的大難題。不要以為與你無關,其實,你正生存在金融危機的世界中。

漫畫家Darryl Cunningham重現2008年金融危機的背景與真相。金融危機形成的緣由,可以追溯到四0年代的俄裔美籍哲學家Ayn Rand個人主義的概念、理性的利己主義,前美聯儲主席Alan Greenspan、茶黨都信奉她的理論,相信人們透過理性選擇自己的價值觀和行動,個人有絕對權利只為自己的利益而活,無須為他人而犧牲自己的利益、雖然也不可強迫他人為自己犧牲,但是,自己的利益凌駕一切之上,這所謂理性的私利,竟然釀成全球不可避免,甚至繼續影響的金融危機。

作者以淺顯易懂的文字,幽默逗趣的漫畫,解釋了極其複雜的金融事件、經濟關係,是一本上乘之作。──New York Times Book Review

中立的解釋Ayn Rand理論,以及金融危機中,自由經濟體系所扮演的角色論,本書做了完整結合與解釋。──New York Times Book Review

Tracking the emergence of Ayn Rand's philosophy of objectivism in the 1940s to her present-day influence, Darryl Cunningham's latest work of graphic-nonfiction investigation leads readers to the heart of the global financial crisis of 2008. By tracing the roots of our bankrupt economies, Cunningham uses Rand's biography to illuminate the policies that led to the economic crash in the US and in Europe; he shows how Rand became one of the most influential writers of her time; and he demonstrates how her philosophy continues to affect today's politics and policies, starting with her most noted disciple, economist Alan Greenspan (former chairman of the Federal Reserve). Cunningham also shows how right-wing conservatives, libertarians, and the rise of the Tea Party movement have co-opted Rand's teachings (and inherent contradictions) to promote personal gain and profit at the expense of the "47 percent." Tackling the complexities of economics by distilling them down to a series of concepts accessible to all age groups, Cunningham ultimately delivers a devastating analysis of our current economic world.
