Big Picture Economics. How to Navigate the New Global Economy. Joel L. Naroff and Ron Scherer. Wiley. $ 29.99
We are all trying to come to terms with the economy following the Global Financial Crisis. Will we get back to “normal” or is the “new normal” a different place to one where we grew up? With much of Europe a basket case and Asia having its own changes, the US is one of the best places for Australians to look for guidance. “Futurist” economist Joel Naroff and journalist Ron Scherer combine to produce lots of examples to make their point about how the US economy has changed. It is a US-centric book, with a touch of Economics 101, but worth a read to understand the debates in America. And how flying robots and 3D printers could be part of our future.
