If you’re at all interested in the forward movement of the US economy pick up Ian Bremmer’s latest book The Fat Tail: The Power of Political Knowledge for Strategic Investing.
“What at first might appear an irrational choice might not be. Those who assume that presidents, prime ministers, and members of parliament care more about sound economic policy than their political fortunes are doomed to the occasional surprise, because political leaders sometimes make market-moving (even market-crashing) economic decisions to satisfy their political needs.”
On March 13 Bremmer spoke at the World Affairs Council Northern California and it was COMPELLING! I could have listened to him talk for hours. If you’re interested in listening to the audio of that talk >>> click HERE. Take an hour and listen and I guarantee you an interesting POV on domestic economic affairs and insight into the impact of the international geopolitical landscape on our every day lives.
