Publisher's Summary

Checks the balance of the current global credit squeeze and asks some key questions: How do global money markets work? Why did a US housing market crisis come to put our savings at risk? Is the situation similar to previous booms and busts? Have global governments done enough to alleviate the crunch? Can markets regulate themselves better in the future or is it time to keep our savings under the mattress?

Pocket Issue looks behind the hype to uncover the facts behind the headlines.
