"Mongolia: Cracks in the Eternal Blue Sky" is the first book in the series "Life is Good, Potentially." Versavel takes us on a journey starting in 2016 when he arrives in Mongolia and ends in 2020 after abruptly being locked out of the country because of the Covid-19 pandemic. With deep emotional engagement, he writes about the state of the country with painful accuracy why presidents and politicians are the reason why Mongolia is not the rich country it could – and should – be.
He describes in painful accuracy how chicanery in the banking sector destroyed what little international credibility the country had, and why the number of people living below the poverty line does not reduce when the economy booms. He paints a picture of political, financial economic crises with devastating detail and a cool sense of humor.
