While some may dispute the author's bleak vision, this is nevertheless required reading for anyone who wants to understand the massive changes hitting the world's economies in the coming decades' - Luke Johnson, Chairman of Channel 4 and Signature Restaurants and Columnist for "The Sunday Telegraph".'This book is a compelling recital of serious points upon which all citizens, whether professional investors or not, will have to make up their mind' - Simon Cawkwell (aka 'Evil Knievil', leading British Bear). 'If you are not yet worried about the financial future you should be. The global economy isn't as healthy as you think it is. Wake Up! explains why and then tells you exactly what to do about it. A brilliantly written and very convincing financial horror story. A must read for anyone who wants to preserve their capital over the coming decade' - Merryn Somerset-Webb, Editor of "MoneyWeek" and "Sunday Times" columnist.
