Product Details


“A must-read on the origins of the crisis.” —The Economist “A well written book. . . . Cooper’s most novel doctrine is that investors do not have to be irrational to generate bubbles. . . . Mr. Cooper traces present difficulties to the rapid growth of credit encouraged by the Fed’s ultra-cheap money policy of a few years ago.”—Financial Times
