Summary Dr. Lin See-Yan presents his observations and analysis of the global economy and the most pressing issues facing the world's financial future. The book provides an absorbing account of the state of the world during the Great Recession years since 2008, giving a run-down on how the US struggles with the jobless recovery; on why the eurozone can't cut and grow in the face of the Greece tragedy; and on Japan's stint in deep hibernation. There are insights into why the international monetary system is in urgent need of reform, as well as into man's addiction to gold, and the critical banking reform efforts. It offers fresh and entertaining perspectives on perennial economic problems. Topics covered include: emerging East Asia; ASEAN (especially Malaysia); BRICS nations; author's views on global demography; the need for quality education; environment; corporate governance in Malaysia; and much more. -- Edited summary from book.
