Top customer reviews
Anyway, Mohamed El-Erian is extremely impressive on TV- very articulate. Can explain complex things in easy to understand terms.
This is technocratic obfuscation at its worst, and El-Erian, who is no lightweight, could have better been served by a heavier edit.
Perhaps the worst feature of the book is its attempt to reach three entirely different audiences--individual investors, policy-makers, and institutional investors. If you are an individual investor, realize that 75% of the book is written for others.
If you find your way through the jargon and infelicitous structure, some solid, thought-provoking ideas gleam in the darkness. Be prepared to dig, though, and bring your headlamp!
