3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty simplistic, 6 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Euro Crisis For Dummies (Kindle Edition)
Reading a few arcticles now and then from BBC news would explain about as much as this book. For 99p you can have the conclusions of those articles gathered all in one place. The whole book must be less than 6000 words. It is easy to understand and explains a fair bit, for people who are interested in the subject you already know more than this book, for those who really don't have a clue (a dummy) it is perfect.

For example it says public debt is measured as a percentage of GDP but then doesn't give the debt of any countries, not one in the whole book. I frequently heard that Greece's GDP-debt was 130-140% GDP last year during bailout negotiations on BBC news (or so I have memories of hearing that, anyway I'm in Japan atm so a little out of touch).

Anyone who sorta keeps up to date, I don't think this is worth it, but for 99p it's not a big deal, might help.
