The first English-language book by Willem Middelkoop, The Big Reset, received great attention during last week’s London Book Fair from publishers hailing from Germany, Russia, South Korea and China. Among them was one of China’s most prominent academic publishers, and negotiations for an upcoming Chinese translation were started. Middelkoop is now represented by the independent consultant Matthias Wahls. The Big Reset was published last February by Amsterdam University Press (AUP) and the Dutch version will be available in April 2014.
On April 15, the Dutch edition of The Big Reset will hit the markets. Willem Middelkoop sold over 100,000 copies of his books since 1997 in the Netherlands. His first book When the Dollar Falls (New Amsterdam, 2007) sold over 50,000 books, and is currently on its 17th reprint.
Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum
Following the publication of The Big Reset Middelkoop was asked to join the Advisory Board of the London monetary ‘think tank’ Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF), which also includes members Ruud Lubbers, Frits Bolkestein and NRC journalist Roel Jansen.
