    One thought on “Rogue Economics”

    1. This book touched on a wide range of subjects, so it'd be most useful as:-An introduction to the rogue economy and how it's interweaved with legal goods and services.-A refresher for readers who've already read about these issues.Similar books that tackle individual issues in greater detail:-McMafia by Mischa Glenny, on organised crime-Knockoff by Tim Philips, on counterfeit goods-The Bottom Billion by Paul Collier, on global poverty-The World Food Problem by Howard Leathers, on aid efficacy-Gar [...]

    2. يحتوي الكتاب على معلومات غزيرة جداً، تحفظي كان على كثرة المقابلات التي تم إدراجها في هذا الكتاب ومع ذلك أتفهم الحاجة الملحة لمثل هذه المقابلات لهذا النوع من الكتبأعجبتني وجهة لوريتا نابوليوني المحايدة، فهي على عكس الكثير من الكتاب الغربيين، لم تنحاز ضد أو مع أي فكرة من الأف [...]

    3. This book is a classic case of an author taking on more than he/she should. Napoleoni posits that "rogue economics has resurfaced because the world is experiencing a profound transformation, perhaps the biggest in history." Yet, she doesn't really drive that point home because she gets caught up in far too many case studies. In 336 pages, she discusses the manifestation of rogue economics in Eastern European prostitution, the Italian mafia, Post-Wall Berlin, communist China, virtual worlds, fish [...]

    4. Have you read any good Economics book , lately ?The book is “ ROGUE ECONOMICS” and the author’s Loretta Napoleoni .It’s a tell-all economic tale of what happens when ‘Economy’ breaks away from ‘Politics’, and how all of hell’s doors are opened . If it were a movie, it would be a mixed genre. A bit on the Tarantino side and a lot on the Matrix trilogy , with the rythm of a “Bourne Ultimatum”.From the Russian and Chinese mafias, the Italian n’dranghetta, money laundering, p [...]

    5. La coppia che non ti aspetti, democrazia e schiavitù: al diffondersi della prima aumenta la seconda: come si spiega questo (apparente) "paradosso"?Passo di Adam Smith da imparare a memoria, p.36."Per la politica regolamentare il mercato diventa sempre più difficile (ce ne siamo accorti). E i problemi di un paese possono innescare una reazione a catena (contagio?) con conseguenze devastanti per molti altri (ce ne accorgeremo)"."Con la fine della Guerra fredda il mercato spezza le catene della p [...]

    6. Questo libro a me ha spiegato che se il mondo è brutto, violento, ostile, desolante, lo è perchè esiste la razza umana. Non essendoci il timore di una ecatombe naturale a breve, le diverse razze (o vogliamo chiamarle tribù?) nei quattro angoli del globo fanno il possibile per annichilire la motivazione all'esistenza alle razze/tribù contigue. Lo fanno con la violenza, lo schiavismo, i disvalori, creando una situazione disagiata per tutti gli esseri viventi, animali compresi. Noi (*ognuno di [...]

    7. كتاب يتحدث عن الوجه الاخر لعالم التجارة و الاقتصاد ، كتاب جميل وممتع و مواضيع مختلفة ومتنوعة ، والحقيقة تشعر بالصدمة لبعض المواضيع التي كنت تجهلها‏العبودية المعاصرة :العبودية ب كل أشكالها ستجدها في ثلاجتك فالمواد الغذائية التي لا تقتصر على الفاكهة واللحم وحسب بل وتشمل الس [...]

    8. أشكر الكاتبة لوريتا نابوليوني على كتابها هذا, فقد كشفت فيه العديد من الخُدع الّتي تُسيّر الإقتصاد العالمي اليوم, سمّتها الإقتصادات المشبوهة, كيف لتجارة الرقيق الأبيض و المخدّرات و المَضاربة و القرصنة كيف استطاعت هذه الإقتصاديات المشبوهة أن تبني بعض الأمم و تهدم أخرى.خَلُص [...]

    9. Excelente leitura.Traz uma boa visão sobre os rastros causados pelas quedas dos regimes comunistas e as ilusões da globalização.Gostei particularmente da abordagem sobre a economia Islã e a tese da volta do padrão dinar ouro.A autora utiliza um tom profético, mas deixa a desejar sobretudo nos números. Fiquei curiosos para ler seus outros livros.

    10. كتاب بديع، غزير المعلومات و الحقائق .اسلوب الكاتبة في تناول مجمل مواضيع و أفكار الكتاب كان منظما و شيقا، و الترجمة أيضا كانت رائعة. أنصح به وخاصة لدارسي الاقتصاد و المهتمين به .

    11. Loretta's books are much better than ordinary and she claims her repute in this one too! I have been studying economics for long but this book presents the other side of the moon and that's devastating!

    12. Il libro parla sostanzialmente di criminalit��, legalizzata o meno. Dei comportamenti pi�� abietti di alcune classi di persone, dell'ipocrisia e dello sfruttamento. Di tutto questo da la colpa a una entit�� chiamata Economia canaglia. Che cosa sia questa cosa misteriosa non �� dato di sapere. E' come un presagio che aleggia su tutto il libro, ma non viene spiegato. Apparentemente l'autrice pensa che tutti i mali del mondo siano da attribuire all'organizzazione economica, come se [...]

    13. This is a really interesting book with interesting information. I greatly enjoyed it and it helped me to rethink some things. That being said, I give it a three star because like many popular works on academic topics by journalists, this book suffers from an incredible ideological zest that often contradicts its basic positions. E.g. in the last chapter, Napoleoni writes the problem of rogue economics appears to be solved by Muslim capitalism under Shia law; however, the author fails to apprecia [...]

    14. This book was pretty intenseI had to return it to the library and so skimmed some sections. It talks about how democracy creates and actually allows rogue economics to flourish. Napoleoni references several countries throughout recent history who become democratic, and whose underground networks and slavery simultaneously explode. Germany at the fall of the Berlin Wall (blossomed a huge sex slave industry), Italy and the mafias that began there and are now all over the world, the gangs from cent [...]

    15. there are a lot of ideas in this book. not always artfully worded, the main concepts nonetheless hold interest. napoleoni draws from a number of different ideas and finds a way to link them into this concept of "rogue economics" - unconstrained economic forces that are not controlled by political forces and are socially ill. napoleoni covers cases of drug and human trafficking, biopiracy, the black market for fakes/fraudulent goods, illegal fishing, et cetera. the winners in such a scenario are [...]

    16. I bought this book because of the reviews on the back that compare it to Freakonomics and Fast Food Nation, two books that I thought were really great. However, Rogue Economics was not. Napoleoni definitely thinks a lot about the issues she covers, and does a lot of research, but she just doesn't write in a way that makes me feel like I should care about these issues. Her arguments are weak and strange, and her language is often vague. There were some interesting parts about the "Second Life" co [...]

    17. Although this is not a faultless book, it is written with vigor and a considerable amount of knowledge. It serves as a wake-up call for everyone who acknowledges the dark side of globalization (which actually has it's positive sides) and, more importantly, liberalization of a block of diverse countries leading to a gold rush of oligarchs and other sharks. She sort of hopscotches between subjects, which although not strictly by the book of economy scholars, leads to a refreshing read, teaching us [...]

    18. هناك اقتصاد عالمي موازي يقدر بأرقام فلكية من الدولارات، قوامه المخدرات و الدعارة و تجارة الرقيق و الفساد و التلاعب في البورصة و الممتلكات العامة . الخ الخ الخ لوهلة تملكني الرعب من الوصف الذي قدمته الكاتبة لحالة انهيار الاتحاد السوفيتي والكتلة الشرقية عموما و التي أدت الى ا [...]

    19. This book goes for a broader reach than Maonomics, and mostly hits the mark. She brings a complexity of thought to a variety of issues, and writing in her second language (?) that's nothing to scoff at. But the first half is much tighter than the second half, which takes on a hopscotch quality, and then ends abruptly. She is pointing out some deeply important ideas in her body of work, and making them accessible to a popular audience.

    20. The main idea is that there's a force called rogue economics which emerges at times of upheaval, but the evidence the author amasses is weak. Her use of statistics is transparently disingenuous, and she seems to want to drag a lot of irrelevant material in as well. For example, in ranting about how low-fat foods are as full of calories as high-fat equivalents, I agree with her but I don't see how that has anything to do with the subject matter; people are gullible - so what?

    21. A worthwhile read. She reveals the underbelly of runaway globalization and greed. Namely, corruption and criminality in a desperate,underground economy. Well written, although rather bleak as she offers no solutions or alternatives. Still, an important read.

    22. Three stars because I learned about the inner workings of terrorism, gangland activity and how it all gets financed thanks to this book. Otherwise there are a bunch of weird conclusions and statements that seem pretty misleading if taken seriously.

    23. this is a good and interesting book. I was torn to give it 4 stars. I struggled to get into it and i got lost at the end. that is why only 3 stars.

    24. لم أفهم الكثير حقيقةفقط تكشفت لي أوجه جديدة من قبح العالم الذي نعيش فيه!

    25. Want to understand where we are in history. This is a good overview of the economic realities of our out of balance world.
