Reviews

"Value(s) delivers very credible answers to the question of how we should tackle the most fundamental problems of our time. It is a rich, thought-provoking and often inspiring read."--The New Statesman
"Value(s) is something of a landmark achievement. Carney is at his most sure-footed and convincing on the rise of a market society and the accompanying decline of values... His ringside seat account of the financial crash, when his pre-emptive actions at the Bank of Canada helped insulate the country from the worst of the crisis, along with his damning diagnosis of early 21st-century banking, are gripping. His argument that companies that are driven by creating an intrinsic purpose from which they derive profit fare best over time both for themselves and society is among the best summations I have read... The sweep and aim of Value(s) remains magnificent. It will help arm the best in business, finance and government and disarm the worst. The progressive cause has been advanced. The boy from Canada's Northwest Territories, still slightly incredulous at his own phenomenal career given his modest beginnings, done good."--The Observer
"A powerful exploration of how the rise of 'market fundamentalism' has been detrimental to economic systems and democratic values... This is an exhaustive and persuasive look at how and why the global financial system needs to be reformed."--Publishers Weekly
"This is an important book. It would be helpful if the right people read it."--Evening Standard
"A fantastic read for anyone interested in the most pressing issues facing us. The need for a world of profit with better purpose is explained in such a clear and persuasive style. I hope it gets read by many people."--Jim O'Neill, Member of House of Lords of the United Kingdom
"A radical book that speaks out accessibly as to how we get everyone involved in solving our problems. And this is what we need: 50 Shades of People for 50 Shades of Green."--Bono, lead singer of U2
"A roadmap to a fairer and more responsible, resilient world. Carney offers trenchant insights into our relationship with money and status, imagination and responsibility critical to our world's future. What do we invest in - profit or human potential? This book is irradiated with the inspiring and critical conviction that money can be transformed into a tool of collective good."--Antony Gromley
"Mark Carney draws on his unique experience of running two central banks to offer original and thought provoking solutions to the world's biggest challenges - from Covid to climate change."--Gordon Brown, Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
"Mark Carney's indispensable new book asks how we can go from knowing the price of everything to understanding its true value. From the Great Financial Crisis to climate change and the coronavirus pandemic, this is the essential handbook for 21st century leaders, policymakers and everyone who wants to build a fair and sustainable world."--Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank
"Thought-provoking and readable... As societies struggle to rebuild solidarity in the post-Covid world, it will be an essential guide"--Raghuram Rajan, Former Chief Economic Advisor to the Government of India
