Stephen King

No, not the immensely successful American suspense-writer, but the Group Chief Economist of HSBC. Not a fiction but a true story, albeit one yet fully to unfold: the scary story of the decline of the West.

The book

King, S. D. (2010) Losing Control: the emerging threats to Western prosperity, Yale and London, Yale University Press

The man himself
