Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
"An absorbing collection of reflections on the great crisis by precisely the people whose views you'd want to read."
--Niall Ferguson
Library Journal
Chittenden, who has worked for the London Speaker Bureau, here gathers ruminations on the recent financial crisis and the crippling recession that has followed. The 40 contributors include such luminaries as Hernando de Soto, F.W. de Klerk, and Muhammad Yunus. Together the essays agree on the causes of the crisis, forming consensus around the pivotal nature of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy and the loss of trust in the financial markets. In a particularly biting passage, Richard Koo argues that events immediately following the failure of Lehman were "the most unfortunate and unnecessary suffering brought about by the incompetence, if not arrogance, of U.S. policy makers." One wonders, though, whether the confidence of some writers in their diagnosis will appear premature, given the debate that rages to this day over the causes of the Great Depression. The chapters discussing our economic present and future offer less unity of opinion and cover the well-trod ground of climate change, population issues, and the role of market regulation. With a handy appendix of short profiles of the contributors. VERDICT Chittenden gathers valuable insight from important thinkers in a variety of fields. The book's organizational scheme will be attractive to readers who prefer to examine evidence and draw their own conclusions.—Steve Wilson, Dayton Metro Lib., OH
