Deep Insights, on Economics . . . and Life
(previous | next)
 
JR BOOK COVER.jpg PFF friend and board member John Rutledge has authored a wonderful new book: Lessons from a Road Warrior. John has seen and done it all. How much is all? How about 15 million frequent flier miles worth. And the stories and people to match. I'll have a longer review later, but for now, if you want to learn about (plunging) asset markets, the global economy, private equity, China, non-equilibrium systems, and the "neuroscience of fear" -- you know, all the important stuff driving today's chaotic world -- along with generous, practical, and entertaining advice to young people just starting out, read the book. You will love it.

Thanks Bret. You are a real gentleman. I hope the book can help people understand how network failures happen, like the credit crisis we are now experiencing, and what we can to to make the economy less vulnerable to future episodes.
