I've written quite a bit about the financial crisis, and God knows I've read nearly every book on the subject, and I have no hesitation in saying that if there is one book that gets it whole, and gets it right, and is THE book for the intelligent, thoughtful reader to turn to, it is ECONNED.
This is not an anecdotal recitation of deal gossip like, for example, Sorkin's book ; it's not "source-based" journalism reflective of the way certain participants in the dire events that unfolded in wish themselves to be seen. It lays out, in what is easily as clear, as direct, as smart and with as much force of fact as any financial writing today how exactly the fun and games that have nearly wrecked our economy and the lives of so many of us went down.tax-marusa.com/order/vekyjan/logicielespionlocalisationtelephone-portable.php
Book Review: ECONned – The Aleph Blog
Despite having read a lot of the recent popularly accessible books on economics and finance, like the above reviewer I found this one the best overview. A good pre-read to this book, or any other book on finance, is Liaquat Ahmed's Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World which gives a good overview of how the modern financial system developed in the first place.

Design by KO. Posted June 17, to America , Books category. What I really appreciated about the book was its willingness to challenge academic economics and finance. She did it well, but left little in her wake as to what to look to as a substitute. The willingness of economics to engage in pretend games with high level math is ridiculous.
If we restarted economics from scratch today, whether mathematical or not, it would not look like much of the sterile games that are played in leading economic journals. Ask the question: how many benefit outside the economics profession from what is written in economic journals. Answer: precious few. I have many more things to say about this book, but this review is long enough as it is. Let me say that there are few books that I have marked up as much as this one.

I do not go in for conspiracy theories. Yves should have spent more time on the enablers of the crisis — yield hogs.
AIG was the largest of them, but by no means the only one. Why should I try to take away the property rights of my neighbor?
Beyond that, suppose you are right. Where would you draw the lines?
Adding to Cart...
It is one thing to criticize, and quite another to propose new policy. Personally, I make an effort that when I suggest that something be demolished, that I recommend something else to take its place. It is easy to be a critic, but hard to be a builder. Most people would benefit from the book, if they read it realizing that the things that happened do not require that parties conspired to make this happen.
Those who would especially benefit include economics and finance professors; they need the criticism.
