I'm Trying to see the world with my ears.
John Mauldin has condensed the essence of America's debt problem into laymen's terms in what is a very readable style. You don't have to be an economist (remember God created economists to make astrologers look respectable)to understand what is likely to happen to us all if we don't get busy and replace some of our socialist leaders in Washington. Maulding uses the analogy of avalanche simulation to see where all the tendrils of risk have created instability in our financial world. I would read this book before I went to bed tonight!! That's how important it is.
The authors attempt to string together material from books by others and fail to come up with a cohesive whole.
I got the impression that they didn't fully understand what they were writing about. The frequent cliches, put downs, and repetitions drove me silly. The topic is obviously beyond them and they should leave it to the experts.
As for the narrator, there is only one word to describe his performance - Disastrous!
From the first sentence, the author reveals his abysmal ignorance of economics, banking and international finance. The book has nothing to contribute to an understanding of "the debt crisis" A total waste of a credit.
