The International Bank of Bob: Connecting Our Worlds One $25 Kiva Loan at a Time by Bob Harris
The International Bank of Bob: Connecting Our Worlds One $25 Kiva Loan at a Time

tvigders, March 5, 2013

From Oakland to Kathmandu; from Westwood to Dar es Saalaam, Bob takes us on an unparalleled, epic journey. You could read a library (assuming you can still find one) full of economics textbooks and not get a tenth of the understanding of the complex global finance issues gleaned from The International Bank of Bob. But "Bank of Bob" does so much more than open the reader's eyes - Harris personalizes the needs of the third world but not by invoking pity but rather admiration. If you don't want to be blown away or have your world view irrevocably altered then don't read this book.
