This review is from: Anglo Republic: Inside the bank that broke Ireland (Paperback)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, despite all the anger it generated as I read it. Simon Carswell did a great job giving a full history of Anglo from its humble beginnings, its mega unsustainable growth, to its downfall and eventually death. It also unfolds the main men behind Anglo, their rise to the top and how they brought a whole country to ruin.
I really did thoroughly enjoy this book, which probably isnt the correct terminology to use as I got so mad to see how unregulated the whole banking sector was during the Celtic tiger years by government officials who were paid massive sums of money to regulate the industry but who took a backseat to it all, yet cashed in their big pay checks.
A really good book for anyone who wants to learn more about the whole Anglo story and the reason why Ireland is crumbling under a massive debt burden because of a few greedy bankers and businessmen!!
