Product Overview

Colin Read explores the intricacies of modern financial markets and explains in easy to understand terms the reasons for global financial unrest arising from the sub-prime mortgage crisis and global economic meltdowns. He proposes that a well educated economic citizen is our most effective tool to prevent future financial collapses, like the one witnessed in 2007-2008. He walks us through a number of topics in economics, and connects these topics to real world financial problems. He then leaves us with a series of recommendations that can strengthen the economy and leave it less prone to manipulation. Throughout, he describes the role of globalization and the expected profound impact countries like India and China will have on our economic future.
