The Problem With Interest

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally someone tells it like it is, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally someone has written a definitive work on our broken economic system, which aspects of it are broken and why. I find this book very refreshing for two reason. Firstly the author makes pure economic arguments against why the systems such as fractional reserve banking and fiat currency just do not work and moreover create problems rather than solve them. This debunks a lot of what is taught as given in our educational institutions today. Secondly the author tackles the growing manipulation of Islamic Finance and the efforts in the industry to mimic conventional finance, presenting a view of what true Islamic Finance is and why it the solution in light of the problems highlighted.

Smart People Should Build Things: How to Restore Our Culture of Achievement, Build a Path for Entrepreneurs, and Create New Jobs in America

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb read, a must for every college/university student., 14 Mar. 2014

This book outlines superbly how the smartest graduates are being funnelled into corporate careers which supress their entrepreneurial instincts. Rather than just lament the status quo or simply suggest solutions, Yang demonstrates how his most important start-up, Venture for America is tackling this issue by providing graduates with an alternative route into start-up and an entrepreneurial career. For students in the UK see New Entrepreneurs Foundation for a similar UK organisation.
