This is a very interesting book about the Great Panic of 2007, 2008, and 2009.
It is truly sad that most commentators are even worse, allowing Wessel to believe that his meager shrinking quibbles constitute a bold and dignified protest.
This could be exceedingly dry stuff, but Wessel does a very good job keeping the book interesting and entertaining.
This book is written like an extended WSJ article. Very easy to read and follow. If you want an institutional look at the 2008 Economic crisis, this is the book to read.Published 8 months ago by Todd M.
A good summary of all that went on at the Fed and Treasury during the great crisis, in typical, easily-understood Wessel style. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Mark Gerboth
