PUGNARE: Economic Success and Failure (Paperback)GEORGE MAHER (author)
Pugnare tells the story of a people like us in their capacity for creativity and self-destruction, and in the wisdom and foolishness of those whom they chose to govern them.
It tells the story of their success, a prosperity that the world had never seen before. And it tells the story of their failure, the one thousand five hundred year long Great Stagnation that followed the self-induced collapse of their world.
