The World Bank (aptly described as a global clearing house of expertise about water management in developing countries), the IMF, The Fed, ECB and governments across the developed world all have a critical mirror held up to their crisis response.
The author is critical, but fair. The book contains enough humour to stop it sounding like a rant, and suggests enough solutions to stop it becoming a litany of complaints.
An excellent read, recommend highly to any who are interested in how we got here, and what we should do to move forward.
He writes like a professional journalist (which he is) instead of a privately published trustafarian (which seems to be the model of the blogosphere), so the BMI of his little tract is respectable rather than flabby, unlike much of what pundits spew these days. And when he's done he stops. Hallelujah!
I like that Alan always thinks in structural concepts, but in this case, when you build that on a foundation of Keynesianism you can only reach horribly incorrect conclusions.
I have been a fan of several of Beattie's FT articles but this is a cannon shot in the wrong direction: beware of friendly fire!
