9780071591584: Greenspan's Bubbles: The Age of Ignorance at the Federal Reserve

THE BOOK THAT BURSTS EASY AL'S BUBBLE-revealing the real story behind Alan Greenspan

The New York Times nicknamed him “Mr. Bubble” for his role in creating the two largest bubbles in recent years: in the stock market and the housing market. Now, MSN Money columnist Bill Fleckenstein reveals the unvarnished truth behind Greenspan's “Age of Recklessness.”

By slashing interest rates to bail out investors, Greenspan made a lot of people rich but his actions resulted in the dot-com disaster of 2000 and the mortgage mess of 2007. But Greenspan's recklessness goes back even further-to the crash of 1987, the Savings & Loan crisis, the implosion of Long Term Capital Management, and even the Asian crisis. This no-holds-barred account finally exposes Greenspan as the worst Fed Chairman ever-and offers an economic wake-up call for citizens and investors.

Review:

Before Ben Bernake shovels more cash into the US's money trap, he should read Greenspan's Bubbles.
-- Bloomberg News, March 14, 2008

Devastating portrait of the man who perverted the concept of risk.
-- Le Temps, March 5, 2008

Greenspan's Bubbles ... is a powerful indictment of Greenspan and his Federal Reserve Board -- Resourceinvestor.com, April 2008

It's harsh to point the finger...yet Fleckenstein and Sheehan's argument is clear, well devised, and provides thorough evidence.
-- Worldfinance.com, April 2008

The lesson this book teaches is clear: "The financial world Greenspan left behind will be treacherous"... We have been warned.
-- African Business, April 2008

The story of Greenspan's part in the sub-prime debacle is told with wit and clarity by William Fleckenstein.
-- Daily Telegraph Online, March 19, 2008

From the Back Cover:

PRAISE FORGREENSPAN'S BUBBLES

“After reading Greenspan's Bubbles you will have no respect for the Fed! It's a must-read…in it, the authors demystify the belief that the Fed 'solves' problems when, in fact, it is directly responsible for a colossal destruction of wealth of the median household and of the U.S. currency through its irresponsible monetary policies.”
-Marc Faber, editor of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report

“Greenspan for Mt. Rushmore? Not if Bill Fleckenstein has anything to say about it.”
-James Grant, editor of Grant's Interest Rate Observer

“In his typically engaging style, Bill Fleckenstein pops the Greenspan bubble…presenting compelling and convincing evidence that the former Fed chief got us into this mess...”
-Herb Greenberg, Senior Columnist, MarketWatch.com

“Before Ben Bernake shovels more cash into the U.S.'s money trap, he should read Greenspan's Bubbles, a damning account of how his predecessor inflated two asset bubbles that mutated into $11 trillion in home mortgage debt.”
--Bloomberg News

“Alan Greenspan was dubbed history's greatest Federal Reserve chairman upon his retirement in 2006, but the housing bust is prompting renewed criticism of his laissez-faire brand of monetary policy. Hedge fund manager William Fleckenstein is among the loudest critics. Fleckenstein is the author of Greenspan's Bubbles: The Age of Ignorance at the Federal Reserve. He views Greenspan's legacy as a litany of too-low-for-too-long interest rates that created the dot-com and housing bubbles.”
--US News & World Report

“I suggest that you read Greenspan's Bubbles, a recent book by William Fleckenstein. It'll knock your socks off.”
--Copley News Service
