A well-written, intelligent overview of what's going on.,

This review is from: The Financial Crisis (Guardian Shorts) (Kindle Edition)This book is written by Phillip Inman who is the Economics Correspondent for The Guardian and The Observer newspapers. As such, he is perfectly placed to explain just what the hell is going on in the world at the moment. And he does so. After reading this I now understand what 'Quantitive Easing' and a 'double-dip recession' are and why they occurred.
Inman gives a succinct and understandable (but not dumbed-down in anyway) explanation of the financial crisis that has hit the planet over the last few years - obviously focussing on the UK, but looking at the wider world as well - and gives a useful overview of the background, the actual crisis itself and the ongoing problems that it caused.
If you were as confused about the whole thing as I was and want to get a handle on what's happened to your money, your house and your job then I absolutely recommend that you give this book a read.
