Cynicism: The New Rules of Economics by Andrew Stevenson is a cynical look at the evolution of economics. Are you sitting comfortably? Then let me tell you a story; the story of how I became a billionaire and a financial wizard – at your cost. Let me tell you how the financial wizards, the billionaires of today got there by rewriting the rules to suit themselves.
