A Career Highlight


"Paul Blustein has achieved the improbable. He has written a riveting thriller about the International Monetary Fund. Even more improbable is that it is not a work of fiction."

--Financial Times

 "An engrossing inside account. . . .The arguments surrounding Argentina's collapse are complex and technical. It is Mr. Blustein's considerable achievement to have fashioned them into such a page-turner."

--The Economist

"A shimmering, essential read for those seeking a deeper and more nuanced perspective on the modern commerce of nations." --The Washington Post

“Using confidential documents, interviews and financial forensics, Mr. Blustein reveals — in often unflattering detail — the efforts of the world’s financial leaders as they scramble to repair the badly-broken global economy.” -- The Wall Street Journal

"Authoritative and detailed....Blustein marshals impressive research." --Foreign Affairs
