Overview

The recession that gripped the economy over the last four years has been the worst since the Great Depression. By no means is it over -- at the rate of job creation seen in January 2012, the economy won't return to pre-recession levels of employment until 2018.

Where are we right now? How did we get here? Where might we be heading next? The Motley Fool's award-winning columnist, Morgan Housel, interviewed some of the world's top economists and analysts, including Yale's Robert Shiller and Wharton's Jeremy Siegel, to find out. This short e-book -- filled with graphics and videos -- explores the state of the economy, the stock market, the housing market, and ends with a critical lesson: The future is always inherently unknowable; tread with caution.
