Revealing insider's guide on how to fix the broken financial markets,
This review is from: The Trouble with Markets: Saving Capitalism From Itself (Hardcover)
You could call Roger Bootle a self-hating economist. In this trenchant study, he takes ruthless aim at fellow economists and financial professionals for allowing the financial markets to run amok. Despite his status as a City of London insider, Bootle mauls bankers for collecting overly rich paychecks and bashes investment advisers for their general cluelessness. While Bootle isn't the only observer to arrive at the conclusion that the markets are broken and that free-market ideology is wrong, his sophisticated understanding of finance makes his arguments especially astute. getAbstract recommends this intriguing book to investors and policymakers seeking a thoughtful prescription for Wall Street and the City.
