What drove Americans to vote for Donald Trump – a racist and misogynist crook? And why are authoritarians like Trump, Putin, and Erdogan on the rise worldwide? Economic discontent, created by automation and globalization, has created a new underclass fearful of its future. But exactly what makes voters act so violently and unpredictably? Why don’t politicians have the answers, and economists appear to be modern shamans, Raindancing for Growth? Amidst so much confusion, we need a new perspective. So Eckhardt Pasenau asks: What would a scientist from outer space think about our planet, its economists, its politicians, and the future? How would this intergalactic expert arrive at a scientific explanation of Donald Trump, helpless economists, and the crisis of our civilization? Answers he will find in evolution. Humanities’ Stone Age mind once allowed us to dominate the planet, develop technology, and create civilization. Yet it is not designed for the modern and complex world. Prehistoric instincts may push us into the hands of despots. Can iconoclastic leaders and irreverent economists avert the crisis and go past our evolutionary vestiges? An epic journey of economics, biology, history, Chaos Theory, anthropology, and politics may begin. This hard-hitting non-fiction book goes to the very core of policymaking. It will overturn your perspective of the past, present, and future.
