For those of you laboring through the current economic crisis, this book will be an eye-opener. It focuses on the misbehavior of Western banks in developing countries over the last fifty years -- with a series of concrete investigations, not just economic theory. You'll be amazed to find that much of the recent misbehavior in the First World has been going on for decades offshore! This book was work to get through -- it is packed with information. But if you really want to understanding what's going on, it's about time we did this kind of homework.....Not surprisingly, the book didn't get much "hype" from the establishment press, but it has a loyal following....and is showing up on more and more university reading lists. For anyone about to travel to Brazil or Venezuela or the Philippines or South Africa, this will also be very helpful background....
