Credit Crunch, The

Pocket Issue

Credit Crunch, The - Simon Nixon

Will the current credit crunch tip us into a global depression on a scale not seen since the 1920s? Are governments and central banks doing enough to alleviate uncertainty whilst juggling the threat of inflation? Is it time to hide our savings under the mattress?

The Credit Crunch: how safe is your money? checks the balance of the money markets and explains how a sub prime mortgage crisis in the USA caused reverberations throughout global money markets.

“This is a really useful book, coming at a time when all of us need to get up-to-speed on what went wrong and understand how we might navigate our own finances out of troubled waters.”
Merryn Somerset Webb, Money Week

Author Simon Nixon heads up the Heard on the Street column for the Wall Street Journal. Prior to that he was executive editor of financial website Breaking Views, a founding editor of Money Week and a regular contributor to The Spectator and The Independent.
