Riches Among the Ruins
IN THIS SUMMARY
The focus of Riches Among the Ruins by Robert P. Smith is twofold: it shows how the isolated economies of individual nations have created great investment opportunities in the last 50 years, and how these economies are slowly intertwining to form a globalized economy – a complex conglomerate of markets created by the digital age.
The book, written with Peter Zheutlin, relates Smith’s professional journey as a debt trader with a love for travel and a lifetime of experience in the world of global politics and economics. His specialty is government debt, the debts owed by governments to organizations both within their countries and across the world.
