This review is from: Eat the Rich: A Treatise on Economics (Paperback)
Another well written book by PJ O'Rourke on something I knew nothing about. But whilst I did learn what GDP is and the importance of it to the ecomony of a country etc I felt this was more a taster of the countries described, a travelogue, as opposed to an 'economic treatise'. I now have a thirst to visit both Sweden and Hong Kong! As a concept I felt this book didnt work apart from being very enjoyable! And PJ, you'se are all Americans - there ain't such a distinction as 'Irish American' except in your own eyes!
