Industrial Disruptions, 2008–2020 book
While many people would argue that environmental deterioration constitutes by far the greatest industrial problem facing the world in the twenty-first century, there is no question that other industrial issues gained greater attention in the years after 2008, from a variety of world leaders and a variety of ordinary voters as well.
