5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, especially if you're a dumbass with an interest in economics., 9 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How Do We Fix This Mess? The Economic Price of Having It All and the Route to Lasting Prosperity (Hardcover)
Best book I've read in ages. I'm a bit of dumbass with an interest in economics, so those two combined means I spend a lot of time reading the business sections of newspapers with a confused look on my face. But not any longer. After reading this book my understanding of how finance works is so complete that I reckon I could get a job as banker, or the head of some European institution that gives unlimited German money to Greece and Spain in the hope they pay it back some day. The only downside is that before I read this book I was a keen Guardian reader but after finishing it, well, I found myself enjoying the Daily Mail a lot more. Not that I'm suggesting this book is for the Daily Mail reader. Just that after reading the facts, it possibly doesn't encourage you to support a financial union with other European countries (unless the union was with Germany, France, Finland and the Netherlands only), which I know is an issue popular with the readers of the Daily Mail.
