Excellent read although the content is frightening in many respects primarily because how alleged senior economists / bankers etc made and are still making relatively straight forward mistakes. Incredible that no significant steps have been put in place to avoid similar situations arising again. Can't get between bankers and easy money. Greed !. Have to feel sorry for the poor Swedish guy who has done a bit of 'time' for his involvemen. Ly
Brilliant concept - visiting the leaders of those countries that have gone from boom to bust in less than five years and examining the cultural differences between them. Includes Iceland, Ireland, Greece and the USA. Fascinating psychological drivers especially in Iceland.
