    A Must Read for those interested in the question why

    I bought this book after watching the author on C-Span. his book challenges all those who think that all a nation needs to do is loosen the rules, drop taxes and let it rip. His book is especially challenging to American conservative. Read it and think.

    The world from different angles

    The author presents a comparative illustrated view of how different people live their economic lives - work, income and consumption. How varying societies, driven by their seperate culturally induced criteria, define these factors and apply them to their every day activities makes for a most interesting understanding of how alternative value standards develop into different socio-political and economic systems. A closer reading of the book may revail that prosperity, rich and poor definitions are not universal. While some of the tables presented are not adequately explained and properly referenced in the text, the numerous anecdotes on how people live their 'economic lives' provides a good balance to those who beieve that the American culturally imperialistic criteria of prosperity is the model for the world. Each nation must choose for itself the economic system that best suits its underlying cultural mind set - there is no universal model for citizens of the globe to embrace.
