The British View

This is the inside story of Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's involvement in the global economic crisis. It is one dire read for sure. Just his reminder of the run on London banks causes pause. Beyond that, Brown outlines what he believes has been learned and what can be done to allieviate other such problems. This is a work in progress and this is Brown's first run at this issue. No doubt he will follow up as he refines his thinking. I certainly hope so. This is not a memoir, but the reader benefits from his political insight which is readily available. This book is a welcome respite from the work of academic economist though their work is highly informative. Mr. Brown reads his well written book. You may or may not agree with his perspective, but Gordon Brown is thinking about the global economy and sharing his ideas with everyone. That is good.

Read Blair's book instead

Ironic that Gordon Brown didn't write regular memoirs, as he didn't serve as PM for long enough to fill a book. It would have been interesting to hear Brown's side of the story after having read Blair's book.

Its no secret that Brown is far left of Blair and this book is clear evidence of that. Nothing but mindless liberal rants.

Nothing personal

I read this just after Blair's memoir 'A Journey'. What a contrast. This book is all about economics and nothing about the man's personal journey. Still, I found it engaging, and it is always exciting to read the 'I was there, this is how it happened, detail'. I had the scary feeling that Mr Brown that was saying: I only failed before because I had too little power. Give me more power and I next time will be able to organise the world according to the GB image. I for one do not want him to try.
