loved this haul...,
This review is from: How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes: Two Tales of the Economy (Hardcover)
this is one of those incredibly rare books; that takes an incredibly complex, tricky, messy subject and explains it in a way that a child could understand - it literally does. it describes how an economy grew and crashed (using the usa as an example) in a graphic, illustrated format.
the story itself is very one sided in its argument; using a theme that politicians meddling, amassing debt and outsourcing jobs overseas is the way in which the economy will crash - but by following the story's tone; it's very easy to see why the authors have come to this conclusion. it's very persuasive but commonsense should tell you the same outcome is going to happen...
i absolutely loved this book because it gives a great account to what has happened over the years with u.s. economy and the dangers of what may happen - the pictures are fantastic and i only wish more finance related books could be communicated in this way. 5 stars all the way...
