FALSE PROFITS: RECOVERING FROM THE BUBBLE ECONOMY provides an outstanding survey of how the unlimited housing bubble was the biggest economic blunder in the history of the world, leading to the recent collapse of the financial system. Many looked the other way as the bubble grew: FALSE PROFITS documents how the country's top economic policymakers kept the American public unaware of the dangers of the bubble, and how they failed to rein it in. A powerful pick for any economic or American history holding!
