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.”
“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.”

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