5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Christopher M. Moylan on April 28, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first third or so of this little book is now dated. The author is writing from the perspective of two or three years from the start of the Great Recession. Circumstances have changed since, though not entirely for the better. The remainder of the book, however, turns to scathing, fairly technical analysis of the rot in the international banking and investment system. Marazzi is clearly worried about the state of the financial system. He doesn't indulge in the usual apocalyptic predictions of the left--in fact, he offers quite a few recommendations for reform-- and this gives the book a refreshing intellectual honesty. A challenging book, but well worth it.
