The Fix

How Nations Survive and Thrive in a World in Decline. Nominiert: Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2016

We all know the bad news. Our economies are stagnant. Wages are flat and income inequality keeps rising. The Middle East is burning and extremism is spreading. Frightened voters are embracing populist outsiders and angry nationalists. And no wonder: we are living in an age of unprecedented, irreversible decline-or so we're constantly being told.
Jonathan Tepperman's The Fix presents a very different picture. It identifies ten pervasive and seemingly impossible challenges-including immigration reform, economic stagnation, political gridlock, corruption, and Islamist extremism-and shows that, contrary to the general consensus, each has a solution, and not merely a hypothetical one. By taking a close look at overlooked success stories-from countries as diverse as Canada, Botswana, and Indonesia-Tepperman discovers practical advice for problem-solvers of all stripes, making a data-driven case for optimism in a time of crushing pessimism.
Rezension
Longlisted for the 2016 Financial Times Business Book of the Year
"An indispensable handbook. . . . Smart and agile. . . . The timing of this book could not be better. . . . Tepperman goes into impressive detail in each case study and delivers assessments in clear, pared-down prose." - Michael Hirsh, The New York Times Book Review
"Persuasive. . . . The success of Canadian multiculturalism provides just one of 10 engagingly written case studies in Jonathan Tepperman's book. . . . The Fix makes an acute point in its attempt to recover a lost sense of optimism." - The Financial Times
"Tepperman's conclusion is valuable: eschew ideology; focus on pragmatic solutions to core problems, adjust as you go, but be as tough as is necessary. A viable future for capitalism will cut across the ideological baggage of the twentieth century. As Tepperman argues, the leaders who stuck rigorously to this approach initially faced intense criticism." - Paul Collier, The Times Literary Supplement
"A readable and fascinating book. . . . Tepperman provides a refreshing and timely challenge to the idea that any of these problems are insurmountable." - Simon Johnson, Finance & Development
"An enjoyable and informative book. . . . Tepperman does a wonderful job of illustrating that government leaders can achieve great things if they put their minds to it." - The Washington Monthly
"Just when it looks like the world's problems couldn't get much worse, The Fix cuts through the gloom like a ray of sunshine. With storytelling reminiscent of Michael Lewis and a surgeon's eye for detail, Tepperman takes us on an eye-opening tour of the planet's local villages, cabinet rooms, and presidential palaces-where a few outstanding leaders have made real strides toward solving colossal economic and political challenges. If you care about understanding the world or improving it, this book is not to be missed. It may very well change the face of leadership." - Adam Grant, author of Originals
"Readers looking for good news will love this book. Tepperman makes a compelling case, in lively and personal prose, that strong leaders willing to forsake political orthodoxy for good ideas can actually solve the toughest problems the world faces. Governments from Brazil to Canada to Indonesia have successfully tackled problems ranging from inequality to immigration to radical Islam. All is not lost!" - Anne-Marie Slaughter, author of Unfinished Business
" The Fix is a refreshing and readable new way of looking at the world. Tepperman combines old-fashioned reporting, storytelling, and social science to create a roadmap for solving today's great problems, from radicalism to inequality to political paralysis. Anyone disheartened by the current state of affairs should read this original, super-smart, and eye-opening book." - Charles Duhigg, author of Smarter Faster Better
"We hear every day about all the perils and problems we face. Along comes this wonderful, intelligent, well-written book that tells us about all the solutions. Traveling around the world, Tepperman has found countries that took on big challenges, from inequality to immigration, and found innovative solutions. This book will inform and enlighten you-and cheer you up." -Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post-American World
" The Fix is the book we've been waiting for, one that tackles the seemingly insurmountable problems of our time-from inequality to partisan gridlock to terrorism. Best of all, it offers solutions. By showing how countries around the world have overcome these problems, The Fix brings hope when we need it most." - Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive
"Despair no more. In this original and engaging book, Tepperman takes on the declinist conventional wisdom with insight and vigor. There are answers out there, he argues: all we need to do is look around, and learn. A wise and timely book." -Jon Meacham, author of Destiny and Power
