In his number 1 hardback bestseller, Vince Cable, 'the stage of the credit crunch' ("Daily Telegraph") explains how we got in to this mess and what it means. In "The Storm", Vincent Cable explains the causes of the world economic crisis and how we should respond to the challenges it brings. He shows that although the downturn is global, the complacency of the British government towards the huge 'bubble' in property prices and high levels of personal debt, combined with increasingly exotic and opaque trading within the financial markets, has left Britain badly exposed. Yet we need to be vigilant in our response to the dangers confronting us. Times of crises inevitably bring forth false prophets who offer easy panaceas and identify scapegoats. However, Cable shows that an insular response to the current crisis would be a disaster and urges us to resist the siren voices that promote isolationism and nationalism as the answer to economic woes. He argues that policy makers must keep their faith in liberal markets if the remarkable advances in living standards, which are now being extended to the world's poorer countries, are to be maintained.

Go to deal works fine if you choose the correct merchant when posting the deal ;-) fixed

if you have a vague idea on the causes and the housepricecrash.co.uk its a pointless need as it adds nothing

if you only have a coffeebook interests it is a good read.

Just my view, as i am the former and it added very little that i hadnt read or heard on the news already
