How Major Nations' Interests Are Now In Conflict

‘‘To understand the causes of the financial crisis, read this insightful analysis of how globalisation led to our present predicament.

‘’In 2005 incoming Fed chairman Ben Bernanke argued that a global saving glut is causing the huge US current account deficits. Charles Dumas recognised this truth long before him. This splendid new book explains how Asia’s surpluses are driving US households ever deeper into debt and why this unsustainable process must end in tears.’’ Martin Wolf, Financial Times

‘’This brilliant book dwells on long-term trends rather than elevator economics, on stocks rather than flows, on socio-political factors rather than mindless econometrics. It is refreshingly heterodox. With consensus economic thinking so prevalent, Leigh Skene's perspective is vital.’’ Jamil Baz, Chief Investment Strategist, GLG Partners

‘‘If we had listened to Leigh Skene’s warnings before the crash we might have avoided the worst of the financial meltdown. Now with this book he warns us that our recovery is way off course – that economies are weaker than people think, that populist solutions do not work and that the west should not expect to be rescued by the emerging economies.’’ Anthony Hilton, Evening Standard

Japan The Coming Collapse

Japan The Coming Collapse

()

A nation of tax cheats... An industry riddled with cartels, price-fixing and collusion... A financial system designed to fleece the saver and reformed to finance the speculator… Politicians fairly elected, laws precisely drafted, impartially applied and widely obeyed could never have produced such a monstrosity. This is no economic super-power bent on world domination. It is a hara-kiri economy set to self-destruct.

‘‘I think this book will prove extremely helpful to young professionals setting out on a career in asset management and seeking to educate themselves about the investment world. The book is clearly the outcome of a lifetime of hard intellectual work combined with practical experience of markets. I think it will be most useful to aspiring investment managers and I only wish it had been available for me 30 years ago.’’ Richard Burns, Senior Partner, Baillie Gifford

Money in a Free Society: Keynes, Friedman, and the New Crisis in Capitalism

Money in a Free Society

Keynes, Friedman, and the New Crisis in Capitalism
()

‘’Prof. Tim Congdon, one of the world’s most eminent monetarists, employs his multiple talents and experience – as a first rate scholar, market economist, and financial journalist – to unravel the mysteries of modern money and banking systems. His most careful attention to the arguments proffered in the great canonical works and debates of the past is unmatched. The readers of his book are richly rewarded. Among other things, they will learn that Nobelist Paul Krugman and the chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, have a tenuous grasp on both economic theory and reality, rendering their analyses of the current crisis wrong or irrelevant.’’ Steve H. Hanke, Professional of Applied Economics, The John Hopkins University

‘’Tim Congdon has never hesitated to challenge consensus thinking about macroeconomic policy, with his clear, original, incisive arguments. He has been proven correct in his predictions for, and analysis of, the economy to a remarkable extent. His work should be required reading in Whitehall. If it had been, recent policy errors could have been avoided.’’ Professor Charles Goodhart, London School of Economics and Political Science
