Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—This concise, timely work effectively introduces the Trouble Asset Relief Program, the collapse of the subprime mortgage industry, and the highly charged issue of governmental economic regulation. The now-familiar style of the work couples diametrically opposed opinions drawn from diverse sources such as the New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, and SocialistAlternative.org with a focus on issues spanning executive bonuses, the auto industry, student loans, and numerous bailout shortcomings. The brief, well-informed opinion pieces are persuasive in argument and economic in language, and each is preceded by a short introduction. The book's approach allows students to familiarize themselves with the pertinent issues involved and to develop informed, critical opinions on them. The work concludes with an annotated list of organizations to contact, such as the libertarian Cato Institute and the conservative Heritage Foundation. A commendable introduction to a complex and highly relevant topic.—Brian Odom, Pelham Public Library, AL
