The Storm: The World Economic Crisis and What it Means

The Storm: The World Economic Crisis and What it Means

by VinceCable (Author)

Synopsis

In this urgent and timely book, Vince Cable explains the causes of the world economic crisis and how we should respond to it. He shows that although the downturn is global, the complacency of the British government towards the huge 'bubble' in property prices and high levels of personal debt, combined with increasingly exotic trading within the financial markets, has left Britain badly exposed. This paperback edition has been fully revised and updated to include Vince Cable's latest assessment of the recession.

Media Reviews
'The best book you can read to understand what on earth is going on out there.' Independent * 'Anybody with an interest in the causes of the deepest economic crisis since the great depression - and that is most of us these days - can easily digest it in a single sitting, and be much better informed as a result.' Guardian 'No one has a greater right to say: I told you so than Vince Cable... The Storm is an urgent admirably clear book which studies each stage of the crisis and asks what it portends.' Observer 'Vince Cable is the only politician to emerge from the credit crunch a star... [The Storm] is a lucid guide to the present mess.' Sunday Times 'Vince Cable is a phenomenon of our troubled times... the most popular politician in Britain... a lone voice in a sea of complacency.' Economist
