Thorough, comprehensive and engaging. Superb

This is an economic history, which distinguishes itself from most other books about the GFC and the EU crisis by placing events in a broader geopolitical and historical context. And what a fascinating, superbly written and eye opening read it is. I don't think it's entirely impartial; the author is not shy about being judgemental and I sense that as he shares my own liberal sensibilities we might both be guilty of missing some useful perspectives. But I highly recommend it, as a deeply researched analysis of how global politics and finance intersect, a beautifully marshalled series of complex arguments and a totally engrossing read.
