"... Yifu Lin has written a superb appraisal which allows us a bird's eye view of the world economy as it stands - or rather, flutters, today. Against the Consensus' two concluding sentences say it all: 'The time is right for reforming the international monetary system. WE should seize it now, before another crisis deals the system a lethal blow.' "
