Review

"The global financial crisis has produced a fresh outpouring of growth scepticism; the idea that we would all be better off in a world without economic growth. Daniel Ben-Ami has provided a timely and thought-provoking reminder of why we need growth and the benefits that it brings." --David Smith, The Sunday Times. "No contemporary writer in English is smarter and more convincing on the benefits of wealth to every aspect of society. It's great to see a book-length treatment of his work." --Nick Gillespie, Editor-in-chief, Reason. "Daniel Ben-Ami is an important voice for reason and fact in our current economic debates. His book is a probing contribution to understanding the decisive way that economic growth helps everyone, everywhere on the social ladder. Ben-Ami's style is incisive and entertaining, his argument crucial to understanding our present economic plight. " --Denis Dutton, Editor, Arts & Letters Daily. "It is all too rare to find a writer who is consistently thought-provoking and yet not unthinkingly contrarian. But in his writings on the economy, Daniel Ben-Ami proves himself to be one of these rare creatures. " --Diane Coyle, Managing Director of Enlightenment Economics. "..an attractively readable, succinct and closely-argued optimistic exposition." --Society of Business Economists

Book Description

The growth of the economy and the spread of prosperity are increasingly seen as problematic rather than positive - a trend Daniel Ben-Ami has termed 'growth scepticism'. Prosperity is accused of encouraging greed, damaging the environment, causing unhappiness and widening social inequalities. Ferraris for all is a rejoinder to the growth sceptics. Using examples from a range of countries, including the US, the author argues that society as a whole benefits from greater affluence. Action is needed - but to increase prosperity and spread it worldwide, not to limit prosperity as the sceptics would have it. Lively and provocative, this timely book will trigger debate and dissent in equal measure and will be essential reading for everyone who cares about the impact of western policy on developing countries.
