You might have seen Alan Bollard on TV ONE Q+A programme yesterday morning. As well as talking about his new book “Crisis” he was questioned about the Job Summit in which he stated that it was to a certain extent “feel good” exercise and wondered its worth. Furthermore, he wasn’t impressed with some of the business leaders naivety with regard to economic policy.
Anyway he left the conference early to watch the 20/20 match in Wellington against India – he had taken part in the groups that were related to him. Click here if you are interested in the interview.
His book backgrounds the financial crisis and takes readers from the sub-prime catastrophe of 2007, through to the collapse of Lehman Brothers and onto the eventual recovery (???). He relays his experience in terms of the human behaviour under immense pressure in trying to deal with the worst downturn since the Great Depression of 1929. The book can be acquired through Amazon.
