ASI Research Fellow JP Floru will be launching his new book 'Heavens on Earth: How to Create Mass Prosperity'. In Heavens on Earth JP Floru shows how the West can reverse its current economic decline. It takes a sweeping view of countries which have dramatically reformed their economies to create lasting high growth, introducing us to the remarkable individuals who made it happen. Singapore, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Chile, the United States and Germany after the war, China, and the Industrial Revolution in England all turned the tide from misery to plenty. Heavens on Earth is a powerful plea for economic growth and the creation of mass prosperity to benefit all.
JP Floru is a Senior Research Fellow at the Adam Smith Institute and a prolific writer, speaker and blogger. He is active in politics and stood for the European Parliament for London in 2009 on a pro free market and Thatcherite platform. Heavens on Earth is his second book.
Dr Madsen Pirie, ASI President, will also be launching his novel 'Silver Dawn'. It is the sequel to his previous book 'Children of the Night'.
The novel follows the adventures of Mark, a lowly cathedral boy who joins Children of the Night to attempt to bring down the rule of the corrupt Church and the oppressive aristocracy.
JP Floru and Dr Madsen Pirie will give a brief talk on their books and copies will be available for sale.
There will be a ten minute speech followed by drinks reception.
