5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure islands;a review., 4 May 2011
This book is a revelation + should be read by everyone.It'll give you something else to feel angry about .Rich people + companies avoiding tax ,regulation + enjoying secrecy while the rest of us carry the tax burden .Tax havens represent an on going danger for the world economy.I love a book that can alter my view of the world + this does it in spades.

5.0 out of 5 stars book review;Spousonomics, 4 May 2011
Excellant + intresting combination of economics + marriage guidance.I especially liked the concept of a marital bubble that can burst just like an financial one.A robust discussion of the neccesity of understanding comparative advantage + not just dividing up all the jobs 50-50.It illustrates too how much hard work is involved in a long term relationship especially one with children.A little too many individual stories thou.
