    This is perhaps the most important non-fiction book written this

    This is perhaps the most important non-fiction book written this century for those under 50 years of age. Your own economic future is in jeopardy, if you believe that we are living in normal economic times, and that structural change is not necessary in the Western World.
    In just 4 key Chapters Niall Ferguson not only summarizes 500 years of economic history, but also gives generation X and Y a way forward to get our Western Economies out of stagnation and into prosperous growth for everyone.
    This book is a must read. Take your time, as each page is thoughtfully written and provides real strategies for success, for you as an individual (if you read "between the lines"), and for the entire Western World.
    Who needs another Superman or Iron Man / Avengers movie (mind numbing escapism), when we have an economic leader and non-fiction author like Niall Ferguson to inspire us to actually take hold of our current situation and do something !

    I have just completed the book and is great. Certainly it is not

    I have just completed the book and is great. Certainly it is not for advanced economists or financial guys, but for non-specialist ones gives an agile, clear picture of the author view of what is happening with the economy today. I highly recommend it .
