How Do We Fix This Mess?: The Economic Price of Ha&hellip by Robert Peston
5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 1 May 2014
Very easy to understand in spite of the complexity of the subject matter. Peston is absolutely on the case and holds no bias one way or the other. He says it the way it is and helps you to understand it. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone trying to decide how to vote. It appears there are insufficient politicians with the ability to handle this enormous experiment. Add to that, the maneuvering to get the better of the other members and it is no surprise the EU is in ever deeper trouble.

Clearly nobody in power… Read more

Apparently we would be doing better if Cameron and Osbourne had different facial features and were not educated at one of the worlds finest schools. These important facts are repeated several times, garnished with bile to reinforce the point.
I do accept the point about greedy bankers who have basically got us on the run. However they are not alone. All executives have seen enormous and disproportionate rises over the last two decades. ( The so-called rate for the job; which they set.) I am sure we want to see this feeding frenzy brought under control but we need to be in a strong financial position first. We also need to establish international standards of control to deal with these… Read more
