Reviews - What do customers think about Zen Economics: Save the World and Yourself by Saving?

"Japan saves the world while no-one's looking"  May 10, 2005
This book makes sense of international economics. Mr Keynes and Mr Marx can pontificate over the future of capitalism, but only Mr van de Weyer has seen the future of capitalism, quietly working to create the future world of peace and prosperity.

This book is powerful stuff. An economist explains the next stage of capitalism to you, as it is already happening in Japan. He reveals how you can become part of it and details the enormously powerful consequences on taxation, corporate taxation, civil society and everyday life of personal savings.

The book is unique for it's perspective on the nature of long-term economic success of the UK and Japan, two economies which provide one of the few valid comparisons to the United States.

Most surprisingly, the including of new information about the international economy in to our picture of the US-centered post-WWII oil economy allows the various left and right wing conflicts to automatically resolve themselves, creating a sense of spaciousness, full and rapid comprehension of the world economy, and a feeling of inner peace.

This final result is the most astonishing effect of this book, and I would add that it would be most useful for someone who already has an economic worldview for resolving the painful and highly stressful sense of a capitalism doomed to exploit and fail into a pleasing sense of purity and truthfulness.

A highly recommended book which is greatly useful.

At it's climax the short history of religious movements in relation to economics is also quite brilliant, seeing to the root of religious differences and showing how the process of cross-influence between religions will further transform militant islamism and fundamentalist christianity in positive and beneficial ways.

Highly recommended for a number of reasons.
