    Overall

    Story

    I'm still none the wiser as to how the financial world's complex creations actually work, or how the Masters of The Universe get away with what seems to me to be nothing but gambling, but this book did challenge my general view that the econosphere is basically evil and bad for society in general. The rise of civilisation - seen through the prism of the financial markets - is certainly dependent on the movement of huge amounts of cash, and there's no doubting that our general prosperity and way of life is, to a large degree, due to the evolution of the markets, but what is certain is that the folks at the top of the money pile need a whole lot of regulation and accountability so as to reign in their all-too-human tendencies to get carried away with their schemes. A very interesting and thought-provoking book, well narrated.

    Bread, cash, dosh, dough, loot: Call it what you like, it matters. To Christians, love of it is the root of all evil. To generals, it's the sinews of war. To revolutionaries, it's the chains of labour. But in The Ascent of Money, Niall Ferguson shows that finance is in fact the foundation of human progress. What's more, he reveals financial history as the essential back-story behind all history.

    Story

    To pay taxes, or not to pay taxes, that is the question ... To which the corporate, international financial and global criminal fraternity have answered with a resounding No. This is a wonderfully dark tale of money eating itself and spewing out more, on which it then feeds and grows, warping the laws and norms of civil society to their own needs to the point that all we can do is willingly, though blindly, throw ourselves into it to feed its relentless greed. A fascinating, inspiring and depressing book - brilliantly narrated, though poorly produced - that has left me angry and thoroughly intrigued. Read it. Then read it again.

    Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men Who Stole the World

    Most people regard tax havens as being relevant only to celebrities, crooks and spivs, and mistakenly believe that the main offshore problems are money laundering and terrorist financing. These are only small parts of the whole picture. The offshore system has been (discreetly) responsible for the greatest ever shift of wealth from poor to rich. It also undermines our democracies by offering the wealthiest members of society escape routes from normal democratic controls.

  • The New Empire of Debt: The Rise and Fall of an Epic Financial Bubble

    "waste of time if you want to learn something"

    Overall

    A few hours into this audiobook I gave up. The unbearably slow pace of Mr. Pratt's reading was driving me crazy and I could not stand the boredom anymore. Maybe speeding up the player, if I had that option, would have made the listening bearable, but then I had a much bigger problem with this book - I was not learning anything new here. The authors drown a precious few flimsy arguments about the US being an empire (so what?) and Americans spending too much (really?) with a whole lotta a bland sauce of yaddy-yadda peppered with what they obviously consider to be "witty" remarks, but which I only found to be annoingly snarky attempts at humor. Then I realized why the book bores me so much - it's a personal doom-and-gloom cermon of the authors' convictions, not a presentation of hard facts about the state of American economy. Why is American economy where it is now? Don't look for a deep analysis here. Although I agree with some of the things the authors claim (yes, Americans are not saving enough), they say very little about why Americans started to behave like this and why the economy is in decline. The true answers would be very uncomfortable to admit for free-marketeers like Bonner and Wiggin... If you want to hear more common sense than dogma and find out what's really wrong with American (and global economy) read this book instead: 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism by Ha-Joon Chang. You will get much clearer answers about why America is in debt.

  • The Intelligent Entrepreneur

    "a great book!"

    Overall

    This is a great book - engaging, informative and inspiring. I am not trying to start a business, but my husband is and this book helped me understand what he is going through. It also made me respect entrepreneurs a lot more. The readers are dynamic and enjoyable to listen to. An excellent choice if you want to learn about entrepreneurship.

Now, he wants to settle accounts.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories. In Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Thomas Piketty analyzes a unique collection of data from 20 countries, ranging as far back as the 18th century, to uncover key economic and social patterns.

    Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point: really hard, and not much fun at all. And then you find yourself asking if the goal is even worth the hassle. Maybe you're in a Dip: a temporary setback that you will overcome if you keep pushing. But maybe it's really a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better, no matter how hard you try.
