Ok so we all know we’re going to be paying for this economic mess for years - now I can tell you we’ll also be reading about it for many years to come.
This financial fiasco is now the subject of at least four new books that are being rushed to print.
New York Times business reporter and frequent guest on CNBC, Andrew Ross Sorkin is set to write, “TOO BIG TO FAIL”, a behind-the-scenes account of the personalities and policies that led to the biggest debacle in American finance since the Depression.
Peter Goodman also of the Times will write, “HOCUS POCUS” tracing the roots of the crisis and he’ll look into the future - exploring the economic opportunities and challenges that may arise in a new financial period of thrift and pullback.
Belgium-based economist and journalist Johan Van Overtveldt's has signed a deal to write, “BERNANKE'S TEST: BEN BERNANKE, ALAN GREENSPAN, AND THE DRAMA OF THE CENTRAL BANKER.” This book will look at how the present crisis is -in Van Overtveldt’s opinion- largely a result of Greenspan's policies, and how Bernanke may be the one to lead us to the promised land.
Roger Lowenstein's Author of Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist will write, “SIX DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD”, a look at how the crisis played out on Wall Street and in Washington. Lowenstein is also the author of “Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist.”
