The Tyranny of Nations: How the Last 500 Years Shaped Today’s Global Economy, Palak N Patel (Bifocal Press, May 2021)

The Tyranny of Nations places the ground-shaking political and economic events of modern times in context. Palak Patel draws on his experience investing in government bond markets to demonstrate how the present fits a specific historical pattern that has defined the past 500 years.

Modern-day trade liberalization and financial expansion all share distinct parallels with similar events in the 1600s and 1800s. Likewise, China’s economic trajectory matches that of 19th-century Prussia and 17th-century France. And a certain British Prime Minister, foreshadowing Donald Trump’s populism 150 years later, launched a similar attack on globalization after the financial crisis of 1866. This unique perspective on the intersection of macroeconomics, history, and politics offers the reader a compass for navigating the future.
