This review is from: The End Game: The End of the Debt SuperCycle and How It Changes Everything (Hardcover)
I though this might be hard going but it turned out to be a real page-turner! It's a fascinating look at the trouble our hunger for debt has landed us in, and the difficult decisions we face to get us out.
It's also a deeply thought-provoking look at the way the capitalist system we live in works - or, in some respects, fails to work.
It's pitched at a level that won't be out of reach from beginners in finance and economics. But even for those who deal with it every day, this pulls together all kinds of themes and thoughts in a way that really helps to bring the big picture into focus.
It has to be said that this has a certain political agenda. But at least the author is refreshingly up-front about his political affiliations. And I for one found his arguments very compelling, partisan or not!
I must admit, I found the investment tips at the end a little too vague to be useful. But in fact that only reaffirms my respect for Mauldin and Tepper. When things are as uncertain as they are now, an honest 'don't know' is a lot more valuable than any amount of phoney certainty.
