Book Overview
The cheap credit available from 2002 to 2008 radically transformed societies worldwide, with Icelanders tossing aside their fishing gear to become bankers, for instance. Then the crunch came, and many of these societies are stumbling about as part of the new Third World.' As a greedy debtor nation, we're not so far behind.--Library Journal.
