Although this book is (C) 1994 -- the edition I have, anyway -- it is amazing how the content resonates with today's economic climate.

For example, it tells in chapter 5 how in 1992 the banks were reluctant to lend after being burnt in 1989. Sounds familiar? That was as a result of the bursting of a credit expansion bubble. Also sounds familiar?

I would consider this book to be required reading for traders and investors right now. The semi-academic style might be a little tough on the brain, but should appeal particularly to students of economics.

It's not without humor, and I particularly enjoyed the story of Pierre and Sasson: who traded a horse repeatedly between themselves, each time bidding up the price and borrowing against the increased 'equity' in the horse. And finally sold that $10 horse to a Harvard MBA for $2,700! Very funny, but with a serious message.
