Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The analysis is keen and provocative, and the conclusions unorthodox as ever."

Publishers Weekly

"Dr. Batra vividly portrays the way in which public disgust for corruption, both corporate and federal, is becoming a serious force for political change."

—Dr. W. Curtiss Priest, Director, Center for Information, Technology, & Society, MIT

Praise for Greenspan's Fraud:

"The most thoroughgoing assault on the Maestro's legacy so far."—Cecil Johnson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"As always, his economic arguments are expressed elegantly."—Publishers Weekly

"In this chilling exposé of one of the most powerful men of our time, Ravi Batra reveals Greenspan for who he secretly is: An ideologue who has waged war on the American Dream and imperiled the world economy."—David Callahan, author of The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead

Praise for Ravi Batra:

"When it comes to the bottom line so beloved of economists, one can learn a lot about events by thinking about them in cyclical regularities, of which Batra gives a novel and brilliant exposition."—Lester C. Thurow

"Ravi Batra has made an outstanding reputation in the United States as an international economic theorist in the best Western tradition."—Leonard Silk, New York Times
