Smick reveals how today's risky environment came to be - and why the mortgage mess is a symptom of potentially far more devastating trouble. He wrestles with the two questions on everyone's mind: How bad could things really get in today's volatile economy? And what can we do about it?
The World Is Curved is that rare work that speaks simultaneously to the Wall Street, Washington, and London elites, yet its apt storytelling shows Main Street readers how to survive in these turbulent times.
"David Smick's probing insights in The World Is Curved stem from an extraordinary vantage point few observers can match." (George Soros)

I found this to be one of the most interesting books I've read on historical economics, written by someone who was there during the hay day of corporate greed and economic bubbles. The chapter on China alone is worth the price of the book

This book is pure laissez-faire/free-market rhetoric. I am a big fan of economic history, and I would recommend "The Ascent of Money" by Ferguson, "The Great Depression Ahead" by Dent, and "The New Golden Age" by Batra instead of this book.
This book was a waste of a credit.
