    It is easy to be stunned by the manifest foresight that a book like this can showcase But the reader has to remember that in a magazine like The Economist a number of contrasting ideas about the current world economy would always be sloshing around To later make a selective compilation of those articles that proved to be 'prophetic' is an exercise in exclusion that is designed to present a false sense of confidence or analytical foresight Just because a collection of articles from a magazine turned out to be uite close to the mark there is no reason to believe that any random article you might pick up from this week's Economist will be of eual predictive value I have nothing against the magazine or the book I greatly enjoy the magazine and to a moderate extent liked the book as well But the blatantly triumphant endnotes trumpeting the date of each article and a further note on how the world actually played out was grating to say the least

    I was exceptionally disappointed in this bookThis book is basically rhetoric and it rehashes all material you learned in school with hardly any relation to the real world I was shocked to see that such a prominent magazine would regurgitate economic dogmaI assumed that because it was a collection of the BEST articles from the The Economist that the thinking would be profound and knowledge cutting edge I was sorely mistaken After reading this I've come to realise that this bookmagazine is ultimately designed to push the status uo and indoctrinate specific economic thoughtI read this shortly before the 2008 GFC and when the GFC hit it confirmed that most of the book is literal garbage The upside is that this book did lead me to explore interesting books about economics

    The book started off with a very defensive tone As opposed to stating its own opinions it conveyed its message with point blank assault on globalization critics As it winds on however the book proved its worth by making reasonably detailed well informed analyses of the world economy It does reuire a bit of basic knowledge in finance accounting and political history of the world but it's largely written in layman terms More importantly given the time this book was written it provided prophetic insights It explains why America's current account deficit is a problem why the American recovery from the 2001 recession rings hollow why asset bubbles should have been addressed by central banks and what caused the failure of IMF and World Bank policies especially in Third World countries Many of these assertions have gained credibility in the course of the current recession Admittedly its defense of free trade and its environmental conseuences conveniently neglected some fundamental issues but overall the book is written with a fair mind The Economist as it turns out is not a conservative magazine after all It fits in the camp of neoliberals in America at least

    I don't so much read this book as refer to large sections of it periodically It's actually a collection of past articles about global economics from The Economist my favorite magazineThe book does presume some knowledge but I read it with NO background in economics and found it densely packed with great information With buzzwords like globalization and securitization or current account deficit flying around it's nice to have a compact reference that helps make sense of thingsThat said it comes with a heapin' helpin' of editorializing The magazine and book are unabashedly pro free market capitalism They are pragmatic than many boosters however which is very refreshing Still I feel there are some glaring blind spots See Ha Joon Chang's book Bad Samaritans for examples

    Jolly good show from my favorite magazine Economics is an anthology of articles from The Economist written between 1998 and 2005 In succinct crisp fashion the articles cover the theory function and ramafications behind such things as current account balances globalization bonds derivatives central banks emissions trading asset price inflation aid to developing countries and labor Staunch economic liberals the authors like their market regulation light and production privatized But they are pragmatic enough to find virtue in less liberal points of view and admit when empirical evidence changes their minds on previously assumed positions A manifest green streak also runs throughout

    This is supposed to be an compliation of timeless articles from the Economist I will saw some of the articles were absolutely wonderful but most of them were so so and a couple weren't much good at all It felt like reading all the articles in the bibliography of a book that has a lot of potential

  7. Jeff Jeff says:

    This is a collection of Economist articles published around the time of the 2007 economic collapse It is interesting to look back and read how this event was covered I can't say that I learned any new insights

    Excellent set of short essays from The Economist It was tough reading for me because I find such content extremely boring But it was written in everyday English and easy enough to understand I particularly enjoyed being introduced to Peter Bauer's work
