Michael Lewis puts the boot in on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme; he compares Greece and Germany’s behaviour since the euro’s launch, and their different responses to the credit crisis. Lewis’s tour d’horizon, Boomerang – the Meltdown Tour has been well reviewed. Here’s novelist Robert Harris in The Sunday Times: “Michael Lewis’s bravura journey through Europe’s economic underbelly brilliantly charts the consequences of a world plagued by debt…highly enjoyable…nicely politically incorrect, often very funny, and shot through with genuine insight”. Here’s more on the book.
