Good on Europe's problems, fair global update
The Gordian knot entangling the Euro members is fascinating and well explicated. This author's prescriptions strike me as pretty straightforward neo-(neo-) Keynesian, but I wouldn't let that dissuade me from hearing him out. He does at least roughly map a lot of areas that need vigilance -- we are not (ever) out of the woods.

We have lots of problems
Although I found this book harder to read and understand compared with Thomas Pikettys Capital in the 21st century, it does a good job of explaining realistic approaches to try and solve the worlds economic problems. In large parts its solutions are based on Keynesian growth models and does a good job destroying the myths about why doing nothing to solve financial crises do not work. However as a reader with only an average understanding of financial markets, I found the book at times difficult to understand and boring.
The book has however made me feel depressed as its solutions seem along way from being introduced throughout the world and so instability, violence and turmoil seem likely.
