Gordon Brown Writing Book on Economy

Get ready to hear one more take on the financial crisis: Britain's embattled former Prime Minister Gordon Brown is writing a book about the financial crash. "In writing my analysis of the financial crisis, I wanted to help explain how we got here, but more importantly to offer some recommendations as to how the next stage of globalization can be managed so that the economy works for people and not the other way around," Brown said. Meanwhile, Simon and Schuster's U.K. managing director and chief executive, Ian Chapman, said Brown's book will be "controversial." Brown reportedly has been writing thousands of words per day since leaving Number 10 Downing Street in May. The book has a reported release date of November, just two months after his predecessor, Tony Blair, publishes his own tome in September. Former Business Secretary Lord Mandelson has also written a book about Brown and Blair's duels over the economy.
