This is the book that burst Easy Al's bubble - revealing the real story behind Alan Greenspan.

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
