Back To The Future,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The World's Banker: A Story of Failed States, Financial Crises and the Wealth and Poverty of Nations (Hardcover)
The title of my review is not just my reference to that terrible Steven Spielberg (a Jew) film, but to chapter 13 of this book. It's pretty apt. Writen in 2005, just before the financial crisis of 2007-2011 (which hasn't ended), the sub-title of the book "A Story of Failed States, Financial Crises and the Wealth and Poverty of Nations" is just a relevant now as it was then. In fact, things have got worse.
One setence in the book (in chapter 12: A Plague Upon Development) misses the whole point: "What the [World] Bank needed at that time was table-thumping leadership."
Wrong! What the World Bank needed (as well as IMF etc.) was to be disbanded completely. We don't need a "World Bank" or any othe kind of central bank. That is problem!
