Englishman, Mark Griffith studied economics and philosophy at Cambridge (the other one), worked as a floor trader in a financial market, and traveled Europe. For several years he has been living in Budapest, Hungary, where he started Green Pencil Books, a publisher aiming to publish a different kind of book. "Collateral Damage" is their first collection of articles (by 27 authors from Niall Ferguson to Joseph Stiglitz) all about the economic crash that started in 2008 and isn't ending any time soon. Green Pencil Books aim to get behind the froth and confusion of TV-driven news, and collect together all kinds of opinions on the real issues. One future title being prepared now will look at the way television has changed us all, and another collection of articles will ask if books have a future at all.
