Like World of Warcraft spawning online sweatshops how are rogue industries transmuting into global empires And will the entire system be transformed by the advent of sharia economics With the precision of an economist and the narrative deftness of a storyteller syndicated journalist Loretta Napoleoni examines ho. While the book contained a lot of interesting and eye opening stories throughout the book I had two recurring problems that kept popping up One on a small scale and the other on a big oneFirst I encountered a few insignificant but obvious errors in small details that I happen to know about This always makes me wonder about he much bigger things I don’tThe bigger problem is the author’s tendency to connect all problems to the fall of the Berlin Wall even when sometimes acknowledging that before that event life might not always be rosy either This seems to ignore the fact that most people are better off now then they were a century ago That is not to say all is well today as the book makes abundantly clear but putting the fall of the Berlin Wall as the start of ‘when things went wrong’ feels at best arbitraryBut while these points were always present they never turned me off the book However near the end it really falls apart for me It might be easy to laugh with the full benefit of hindsight about the shining role in future economics the author assigned to Malaysia in the wake of the 1MDB scandal But already in 2008 it should have been clear that the Sheiks of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf would not uite turn out to be the champions of a inclusive economy The final theory suffers from the one that often described communism great in theory but completely disregarding the fact that it involves people in practiceIn all this is a book that is great in signaling problems but average in identifying the causes and terrible in its proposed solutions

This book is a classic case of an author taking on than heshe should Napoleoni posits that rogue economics has resurfaced because the world is experiencing a profound transformation perhaps the biggest in history Yet she doesn't really drive that point home because she gets caught up in far too many case studies In 336 pages she discusses the manifestation of rogue economics in Eastern European prostitution the Italian mafia Post Wall Berlin communist China virtual worlds fishing and pirates and the world of sports I had a hard time finding an intelligible string between these examplesThe silver lining was that I finished this book the week that President Obama was inaugurated Napoleoni believes that nations need to work together to instate policy because when they fail to do so the unintended result is rogue economics Lets hope the Obama administration can do that To sum up this book will not leave you with a lot of concrete knowledge that you can use in thinking about or discussing economics It will however help you to start thinking globally about the subject
