I am not a politics reader but when I came across this book by chance I grabbed it up. After beginning reading it I found I couldn't put it down. I finished it in no time at all. It was a terrific book. It definitely made me see Obama in different eyes (as long as its all true! :) Many of the proposed policies and ideas he has for our country are wonderful as are the authors, John Talbott's suggestions something to be taken into consideration. I very much enjoyed this book and think that you will too. I think that Obama just may be our best president yet for the America we have become. We need to become the America we were meant to be and I think that if we took his suggestions discussed in the end of the book, we could come around and make the world a better place, one person at a time! Its time to focus on America, on us and on each other! We are all a big family and we should act like it too!

Today, on the occasion of the release of the italian edition of the book by John R. Talbott "Obamanomics" published in Italy by "Università Bocconi Editore", has been held a Round Table at ISPI, where took part Boris Biancheri from ISPI, Tito Boeri from Bocconi University, Alberto Martinelli from Milan State University, Fabio Ranchetti from Pisa University and Corriere della Sera and John R. Talbott himself in a teleconference communication.

Talbott, bestselling author, is considered as one of the first to predict the current housing and mortgage crisis, has been focusing his attention to the economic and social challenges of the new presidency, as well as to economic possibilities achievable under a Barack Obama presidency.

This book delivers a fairly comprehensive review of the financial aspects of Obama's platform, frequently quoting from same at length. The author, as befits his background as a former investment banker, is especially strong on the economic and financial intricacies and impacts of this platform. This author predicted the collapse of the housing market in books dating back to 2003, so the chapters that directly relate to the September 2008 financial meltdown are especially credible and interesting and his explanation of arcane financial instruments such as derivatives and credit default swaps (swap = insurance) are clear and instructive.

The book slowed down a bit for me toward the end where the author wandered away from his field of expertise and decided to take a broader ramble through political philosophy, but I will say, his chapter on our aging population and social security was both eye opening and frightening.
I give it a "thumbs up", especially for those looking for a semi-concise summary with comments of Obama's economic plan. ( )
