5.0 out of 5 stars Lucid and easy to understand
This was a very interesting beach read. It did tend to repeat itself quite alot but then this was fair enough since the concepts are not that straight forward to the layman. I am not an economist but found it reasonably easy to follow. The fact that traditional economic theory seems to rely on a rather unlikely sterile world merely confirmed why economic forecasts are...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me
A book containing repetitive material, largely the work of others, which could be shortened to make the point(s) that it attempted to. The book lacked clear structure and wasn't too enjoyable to read. The chapters consisted of really changeable material, all sort of inserted alongside each other but not really presenting a broader message. I disliked the author's voice...

This was a very interesting beach read. It did tend to repeat itself quite alot but then this was fair enough since the concepts are not that straight forward to the layman. I am not an economist but found it reasonably easy to follow. The fact that traditional economic theory seems to rely on a rather unlikely sterile world merely confirmed why economic forecasts are usually so poor. I think a bit more emphasis on the banks role in the recent financial crisis could have been given and how the government deciding economic policy using dogma rather than any sound thinking about the effects of their tinkering is pretty depressing. Also the futility of complex tax laws should also have been plugged further.

A book containing repetitive material, largely the work of others, which could be shortened to make the point(s) that it attempted to. The book lacked clear structure and wasn't too enjoyable to read. The chapters consisted of really changeable material, all sort of inserted alongside each other but not really presenting a broader message. I disliked the author's voice being heard in the book e.g. "I am not joking...". It felt like the author was trying to persuade me or convince me of something. I reluctantly read this book to the end. My partner also read the book and would recommend it a 2.
