It’s finally out…
Yesterday, Editor in Chief P.J. O’Rourke’s latest book was released. And you must read it.
I read an advance copy of None of My Business: P.J. Explains Money, Banking, Debt, Equity, Assets, Liabilities, and Why He’s Not Rich and Neither Are You a few weeks back… and it is spectacular.
It’s funny… insightful… and even more important, you asked for it.
Take this e-mail from Mike S. from Maine, who wrote us over the weekend…
I have always enjoyed your perspective and would gladly pay to subscribe to a PRINT version.
If you, like Mike, have been agitating for us to publish a printed, dead-tree version of American Consequences, you’re in luck!
You’ll recognize a few of the essays in None of My Business. This is P.J. doing in book form the same thing that he’s doing in magazine form at American Consequences…
Namely, channeling his extensive experience of making fun of terrible things in despicable places and applying it to somewhere even worse – Wall Street.
So whether you’ve been reading P.J. for years or you’re a new reader discovering his work here at American Consequences, you’ll want to read this book cover to cover.
Plus, tomorrow night at 7 p.m. Eastern time, you can catch P.J. on Hardball With Chris Mathews on MSNBC. He’ll be talking about the latest happenings out of Washington, D.C. and what led him to tackle the world of finance in his latest book.
Now here’s a few things we’re reading…
Some of fracking’s biggest skeptics are on Wall Street. They argue that the industry’s financial foundation is unstable: Frackers haven’t proven that they can make money.
The world’s debt problems aren’t going away. The bill always comes due. Always.
The loss of investor confidence in the Turkish lira, which has surrendered more than 40% of its value this year, is only a preview of debt problems that could engulf countries such as Brazil, South Africa, Russia and Indonesia…
“The growth in debt, especially private debt, in advanced countries has slowed, but this slowdown has been offset by an acceleration of emerging country debt.”
If you need more convincing to go read P.J.’s new book, two advance reviews…
I think people my age should read P.J. O’Rourke’s latest collection… It was refreshing to hear a voice that not only challenged my views but made me laugh at them too.
Goods and services seem sort of free if you don’t have to pay straightaway yields a topsy-turvy financial world, one whose craziness can logically be resolved only with the use of a “9mm Glock – VISA card of the future.”
