The Captured Economy: How the Powerful Enrich Themselves, Slow Down Growth, and Increase Inequality
4.5 out of 5 stars with 78 reviews
For years, America has been plagued by slow economic growth and increasing inequality. Yet economists have long taught there is a trade-off between equity and efficiency - that is, between making a bigger pie and dividing it more fairly. That is why our current predicament is so puzzling: today, we are faced with both a stagnating economy and sky-high inequality.
In The Captured Economy, Brink Lindsey and Steven M. Teles identify a common factor behind these twin ills: breakdowns in
The Map and the Territory: Risk, Human Nature, and the Future of Forecasting
4.5 out of 5 stars with 121 reviews
Like all of us, though few so visibly, Alan Greenspan was forced by the financial crisis of 2008 to question some fundamental assumptions about risk management and economic forecasting. No one with any meaningful role in economic decision making in the world saw beforehand the storm for what it was. How had our models so utterly failed us?
To answer this question, Alan Greenspan embarked on a rigorous and far-reaching multiyear examination of how Homo economicus predicts the economic future,

Freefall: America, Free Markets, and the Sinking of the World Economy
4.1 out of 5 stars with 113 reviews
The current global financial crisis carries a ''made in America'' label. In this forthright and incisive book, Nobel Laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz explains how America exported bad economics, bad policies, and bad behavior to the rest of the world, only to cobble together a haphazard and ineffective response when the markets finally seized up.
Drawing on his academic expertise, his years spent shaping policy in the Clinton administration and at the World Bank, and his more recent role as head of

4.8 out of 5 stars with 103 reviews
An insider of both the Bush and Obama administrations offers an irrefutable indictment of the mishandling of the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program bailouts and the extreme degree to which our government officials-from both parties-served the interests of Wall Street at the expense of the public.
