Desperate for higher inflation!
Jul 15, 2014

Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

The favorite business book of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett
When the richest man on the planet endorses a business book, it certainly makes sense to give it a try. And when two of the richest people in the world recommend the same book, one can't help but sit up and take some serious notice. There's a business book that was first published in the 1960s. However, both Gates and Buffett consider this book as the best business book they've ever read even after so many years. Interested in knowing more about the book? Well, read on to find out. (The Wall Street Journal)

Why Singapore could be the next Iceland...
Between 1995 and 2007, Iceland had transformed itself from a traditional fishing and tourism-based economic backwater into a finance and banking powerhouse, rocketing the country's wealth and living standards to enviable new heights. However, the meltdown of 2008 showed that Iceland's economic boom was an illusion. Uncannily, the Southeast Asian island nation of Singapore is currently displaying parallels to Iceland's economic bubble. What are the chances that Singapore could see its economic boom have an end similar to Iceland's? Read on to find out. (Forbes)

Desperate for higher inflation!
While we seem to be perennially waging a war against high inflation back home, things are quite different elsewhere. In fact, it's the very opposite in the eurozone. The IMF (International Monetary Fund) has issued a stern warning to Europe's authorities about inflation being too low for too long. Read on to find out more about how central banks can be faulted, not just when inflation is too high like here in India, but also when it is too low. (The Teleghaph)

Will a 'silver standard' see the light of day?
The loose monetary policies of central bankers across the world especially the US has raised several questions on whether the US dollar deserves to be the world's reserve currency. Indeed, as the value of paper currencies is bound to deteriorate when there is too much of money printing, talks were already doing the rounds that the 'gold standard' needs to be restored. Not just that, many countries are already looking to reduce their dependence on dollars. Now there is one country that could be planning to back its currency with silver. Will this work? Read on to find out (The Crux)
