BUSINESS CLASS: Write all about it

This week our travels take us to the US to check out Hank Paulson's new book about bird watching (and that GFC thing), to debt-ridden Greece to meet some angry farmers and to Hong Kong, where the battle over a tycoon's will has turned truly bizarre.

There are many different ways to get over the trauma of a financial crisis, but by far the most popular for those most deeply embedded in the drama has been to get it off your chest and onto the pages of a book. Memoir, inside story, explainer, inside story, big giant 'I told you so', inside story, blow-by-blow account, outside story; it doesn't matter, just spew it all out, feel better and move on. That is certainly what former US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson has attempted to do with his latest tome, On the Brink, which hit the shelves of America's book stores this week.
