HISTORY IN THE NEWS AGAIN
The Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the year award went yesterday to a history book. Liaquat Ahamed won the £30,000 prize for his book Lords of Finance about the Wall Street Crash; a book extremley relevant to today's economic woes. Yet more proof, if it were needed, that any issue can be made more relevant and interesting with an historical perspective.
