For those interested in the political, military, and geostrategic backdrop to financial markets, I would recommend "The Global Minotaur" by Yanis Varoufakis. I've had the book for a while but the reason it came to mind was a book review written by someone I know:
Great book indeed!!
He might be the next Greek Minister of Finance, also.
Yes indeed. The next few days, the next few weeks, are going to very interesting for the EU. Will Greece stay in the EMU or will it go? If it stays, what concessions will the Germans (er, the other EMU members) make?
By the way, the link to the book review does not work any more.
Probably this one on AmazonBy the way, the link to the book review does not work any more.
This is supposed to be the same book as " The Global Minotaur", only more technical (and more expensive, it's not a best-seller). I have not read it yet, but the nice thing with Varoufakis is that even his textbooks are enjoyable and easy to follow.
