Described in the press as "Dr Gloom" and "Terrifying Tim", Tim Morgan has never avoided controversy, whether he is pointing out the crippling weaknesses of the British economy, calling for greater justice for a younger generation robbed by its elders, or explaining the link between inner-city riots and thwarted materialism. He developed the Essentials Index, which provides invaluable insights into the real cost of living. Educated at Cambridge, Tim has always been fascinated by economic, political and military issues. His fascination with maritime warfare has taken him from commando exercises to the flight-deck of an aircraft carrier. As head of research at leading finance house Tullett Prebon from 2009 to 2013, Dr Tim Morgan gained a reputation for supplying radical answers to pressing economic and political issues, and garnered significant media coverage for leading-edge reports including his Project Armageddon study of the British economy. Life After Growth is the product of extensive research into how the economy really works, and presents radical explanations for the economic problems of today and tomorrow.
"A lesson I learnt early on is that when Tim has something to say which is related to energy analysis, as this book is, it is wise to take notice...If I had one wish it would be that commentators, and policy makers, take his work as seriously as it deserves to be taken." - Terry Smith;"Life After Growth has completely reframed my thinking about what's going on in the world today." - Mike Scialom, Cambridge Business
