About this title


David Smick keeps a low profile, but experts consider him one of the most insightful financial market strategists in the world. For more than two decades, he has conferred with central bankers and advised top Wall Street executives and investors. The World Is Curved picks up where Thomas Friedman‚ s The World Is Flat left off, taking listeners on an insider‚ s tour through the private offices of central bankers, finance ministers, even prime ministers. Smick reveals how today‚ s risky environment came to be‚ and why the mortgage mess is a symptom of potentially far more devastating trouble. He wrestles with the two questions on everyone‚ s mind: How bad could things really get in today‚ s volatile economy? And what can we do about it? The World Is Curved is the rare work that speaks simultaneously to the Wall Street, Washington, and London elite, yet its apt storytelling shows Main Street readers how to survive in these turbulent times. ‚ The World Is Curved is...essential...for those who wish to understand the workings, politics, and distresses of the global financial system...insightful and entertaining...‚ ‚ Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board; author of The Age of Turbulence ‚ David Smick‚ s probing insights in The World Is Curved stem from an extraordinary vantage point few observers can match.‚ ‚ George Soros, Soros Fund Management
