Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A novel and ambitious idea, but it all descends into a somewhat shallow tale in the end. The subject is the idea of a global economic transformation to share wealth better. The people about to propose the concept are murdered on their way to a major international conference of the rich and powerful.
What follows though is a series of chases and lucky escapes as bits of the theories are explained via farmers' fables. There are many unrealistic ingredients, including coverage of the way a global conference is run, the haphazard police efforts and the presence of many all-powerful mystery players. At the end, of the assassins and other culprits, we hear no more.
There are virtually no characterisations, so the reader feels a bit empty and/or unaligned, despite a general hope that the good guys prevail.
Eventually, the core economic message is announced at the conference and the book just stops. So there you have it: neither an overly engaging thriller, nor a world-changing economic model to adopt.
I read a lot of books and this is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. If you lean right or left, are old or young, rich or poor this is a book I would recommend to anyone. The book really makes you think.
but a bit sloppy towards the end for my taste. The question left unanswered, how many times can we provide proof over and over again, before people finally start to accept, that capitalism doesn't work for the vast majority of people? There is nothing new to this fact and it is just embarrassing, that the main reply always is, that there is no other system, so why not inventing one? Good examples are around a lot, money is around to be invested in rubbish ideas, why not using some resources for something useful for once?
