How Our Broken Global Financial System Destroys the Middle Class
"The global financial system has enormous influence on the day-to-day lives of billions, yet is shrouded in mystery and poorly understood. Through narrative-driven reporting, vivid storytelling, and perceptive analysis Michael Casey brings to light the distorted, dysfunctional global economic system that benefits a tiny elite but leaves the rest of the world's population powerless. In ways that wonkish tomes cannot, this anecdote-rich account of the effects of global finance on the lives of ordinary people shows why we must understand and care about rigid misaligned exchange rates, currency wars, and the dangerous imbalance in the world's savings and spending patterns"-- Provided by publisher.
