Big Pic­ture Eco­nom­ics. How to Navigate the New Global Econ­omy. Joel L. Naroff and Ron Scherer. Wi­ley. $ 29.99

The Australian - The Deal - - First Up -

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.
