Son bölümdeki aynı karakterlerden bazılarıyla devam eder. Bunu daha çok sevdim. Bu, sonuncusu gibi kitle imha silahlarıyla ilgilenir, ancak çok teknik değildir. Nükleer fizikçi olmaya ya da beni sıkan şeyleri atlamaya gerek yok. Şimdi bir sonraki Madriani'ye, arkadaşlarına ve düşmanlarına.
It might be unfair for me to rate this book (giving it 2 stars). My rating is subjective. This isn't the book I was looking for, and that isn't the authors' fault. So please view my rating with that in mind. This book is clearly aimed at an academic or professional economic audience. The book is chock full of tables and graphs. The amount and quality of data is impressive. As for the writing style, Alan Greenspan would be proud. Here is a typical sentence (pp 192-3): "Interpreting the (unconditional) probability of high inflation used in figure 12.5 as a rough measure of the credibility of a monetary policy gives us some insights as to why achieving low inflation is generally not a sufficient condition for a rapid decrease in the degree of dollarization; namely, a country with a poor inflationary history will need to maintain inflation at low levels for a long period before it can significantly reduce the probability of another inflationary bout." If that type of presentation appeals to you, then by all means put this book on your "to read" list. I read the entire book, although I admit to skimming some sections. I really wish This Time Is Different had a Cliff Notes version. I would have gotten a lot more from a 25 to 50 page condensation. As it is, the huge amount of detail made it difficult for me as an intelligent but casual reader to fully appreciate the main points. I think the authors have a compelling story to tell. But I think most readers in the general public, even those motivated to read an in-depth book on this topic, are going to have a difficult time here.
Some of the stories had me laughing out loud. Others I found sad. I hear his other books are better (Me Talk Pretty One Day).
