5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading, 12 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Default Line: The Inside Story of People, Banks and Entire Nations on the Edge (Hardcover)
This book takes complicated issues, intertwined extensively with one another, and breaks then down into manageable chunks then presents them clearly.

The background interviews are fascinating, the analysis thoughtful, the extra detail that hindsight adds puts many things into context.

For me the big issue here is the repercussions of these events on the future, and how that future is going to struggle to be a bright one unless there is a huge change in the attitudes of politicians who remain more concerned about bribing the electorate with their own money than fixing the actual issues.

It's a great story, the ending can't be described as a happy one but it is what it is. What it is is brilliantly told, with depth but with a rare clarity.

Highly recommended.
