Book Description

The Penguin Economist Special reports delve into the most pressing economic issues of the day: from national and global economies, to the impact of trade, industry and jobs. Written to be read on a long commute or in your lunch hour - be better informed in under an hour.



Is financial innovation good or bad?


Did it cause the financial crisis of 2007/2008?


Are the current financial systems working for a stable global economy?



Andrew Palmer answers these questions in his special report, but urges that it's more that just a debate on whether financial innovation does or doesn't work. In fact, he claims, it is almost impossible to draw these distinctions.



Using a variety of examples - from social bonds to securitisations risks - he highlights the weaknesses in innovative strategies, revealing how some innovation is doomed to failure.



The consequences of innovation are now so crucial and so scrutinised - it is essential reading for anyone in the business world.



Sections include:


Playing with fire


The ferment of finance


The little guy


From vanilla to rocky road


The fast and furious


Of plumbing and promises

Safety first
