Just finished reading what I consider one of the best timely books on our current financial crisis.
Having read several books on this topic... this one is a must read. Why?
It is written for us, the layperson... not the professional.
Check out the contents, the author writes with a simple, clear hand.
You will not find the usual economic jargon that can bog down the ease of reading and understanding. This a major achievement in itself.
He covers the first known bubble histories (1630's)up through 2008.
This is the updated version from the original 2004 version. (covering through 2008)
It interesting to read his comments what he thinks will happen in 2009-10.
He pretty good at reading the "tea leaves"
He does an excellent job of presenting different view points (his included) but leaving you to decide.
A good read.
