To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is the second book I have read from James Rickards. I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and the second has disappointed either.
It's informative, insightful. It's a must for anyone who wants to have a better understanding of what 'money', 'market' and 'central banks' means this is a book to have.
I have been ignorance for years on anything political and financial, I kept telling myself - keep your head down they are just too complicated to understand. I am dead wrong, now I feel I have let myself down all these times not having done more and try to understand. This book is easy to digest, well structured and a must for anyone who wants to understand the seemingly convoluted banking/money system.
What a book. I am not the best with regards to finance, but the way this book is written brings the complex world of trading and finance to the non-initiated. Great concepts and insight from the author, who has a very long and well connected pedigree. will look for more of his writings once finishing this book!!
His understanding of the monetary system, both modern and historical are 2nd to none. And he explains in such a great way. Its really given me great understanding pf what's happening with the state of currencies and what are the likely outcomes incoming.
Brilliant analysis of what is in store for our money system. Don't agree, however, to the rosy picture he draws for the Euro. The Euro Zone has been created primarily to serve political ends notwithstanding the deep socioeconomic and cultural divides among its members which in my opinion inevitably will result in its break up rather sooner or later.
