Get past politics and ideology: gain an objective understanding of where America’s economy stands, where it’s headed, and the best ways to improve it for the long-term. Moody Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi – who’s advised leaders in both political parties and every sector of the economy – now offers the deep insights you need to make intelligent plans as an investor, businessperson, employee, and citizen. In the new updated edition of Financial Shock: Global Panic and Government Bailouts--How We Got Here and What Must Be Done to Fix It , Zandi offers timely insights into the market meltdown and the Obama administration’s policy responses, bringing objective insight to the crucial question: why did the U.S. economy collapse, and how can we keep it from happening again? He outlines the true roles of mortgage lenders, investment bankers, speculators, the real estate industry, regulators, the Fed, and homebuyers… previews tomorrow’s most worrisome areas of global financial risk… and offers realistic policies for preventing the next dangerous shocks. Then, in Paying the Price: Ending the Great Recession and Ensuring a New American Century, Zandi takes stock of the American economy as it stands now, reviewing the progress towards recovery, and outlining what still needs to be done. Zandi offers a surprisingly optimistic diagnosis: one of growth, stability in the housing markets, a safer financial system, lower household debt. He thoughtfully reviews the key problems that still remain, from mounting government debt to the growth of disenfranchised workers, outlining the progress that has -- and hasn’t -- been made. Offering you the same insights his clients pay handsomely for, Zandi’s two books will help you make better economic decisions in all your roles – personal, financial, political.
