Once The 2008 global financial crisis This led to a downward spiral where America grew heavily indebted to China and is now in a precarious situation where it owes trillions to China a situation that would have been unthinkable in forty years ago While on on the other end of the Spectrum Chinese nationals were saving their money and were far less willing to spend their money on investments which had little impact socially on their nation but instead made far sound investments As well as had actual usable cash in their Banks The Book is an incredibly sobering look at the world of Banking and Finance and makes the average eader me uestion just what the Banks do with the money we give them and if we are safe from a second crisis I personally feel it is important to see the world through her lens because as the saying goes People who don t know their History often times The People from the Sea repeat it andeading Dambisa explain just how myopic investment into the Housing Market and the failure of financial St Lucy's Home For Girls Raised By Wolves regulatory bodies like Central Banks and the IMF to fulfil their fiduciary duties beyond monitoring and adjusting inflation makes me wonder if the world has learnt much from the 2008 crisis or of the world is even willing to change to avoid another similar event Once again Dambisa makes a great argument and supports her wellesearched arguements with fine writing and esearchI feel this book was better written than Dead Aid due to the elegant flow of the prose in this one as opposed to Dead Aid which even though it was brilliantly written felt a bit essay likeI didn t have many issues with it except for the fact that the book was written from a purely economic perspective and she herself admits in her book that other factors like Democracy and free speech also have a significant impact on the Economic success of a nation and I feel that these factors were not adeuately explained of course that s no fault of hers she s an economist first and foremost Further I m not sure if her world view fully tallies with eality she seems to see things in an us versus them scenario East versus West with little to no chance of mutual benefit a zero sum game so to speak I must argue that there might be other less warlike scenarios out there that might play out provided we are willing or are forced to consider them All in all I loved the book plain to see from my long Mr. Majeika and the Dinner Lady and Mr. Majeika and the Music Teacher rant and I can t wait toead her other works How the West Was Lost Fifty

the aptitude of the workforce and the nature of the technologyBeginning with capital Moyo points out how the cash strapped West is losing out in the international bidding war for commodities The 50 year long policy to enable the chase for the American Dream by extending credit against an ever weakening collateral has left America at the cliff edge of collapse Too much capital was drawn into the housing market by isk loving banks backed by government guarantees where it becomes non productive capital non cash generating and low yielding The combination of easy debt like mortgages and the mistaken belief that home euity would always ise led to the housing bubble and collapse of 2008 Moy.
