Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Grant had the good fortune to start a newsletter titled Grant's Interest Rate Observer ten years ago, at the beginning of a historic decline in interest rates that continues through this year. Thus, with the benefit of hindsight, we can read these selected essays containing Grant's erudite views on the unfolding economic climate that included a stock market crash, a national credit crisis, and a rebuilding of the nation's savings and loan industry. This anthology from the author of Money of the Mind ( LJ 5/15/92) may not be essential, but it is as painless as economic literature can be and the selected essays are, as a whole, fascinating. For most libraries.

From Booklist

Grant is publisher of Grant's Interest Rate Observer, an investment newsletter with influence far beyond its relatively small subscription base of 3,000. Rather than offering stock picks, Grant provides economic analysis based on credit market activity and fluctuations in interest rates. Last year his noteworthy Money of the Mind railed against a century of credit recklessness, tracing "borrowing and lending in America from the Civil War to Michael Milken." Since its inception 10 years ago, Grant's bearish newsletter has often been wrong, but Grant's contrarian views have been much sought on financial panels and news commentaries. Here he reprints more than 80 essays that appeared in the newsletter over the last decade. Grant writes well; these pieces are always incisive and often entertaining. Cartoons by Hank Blaustein will be added to the finished book. David Rouse

Format: Paperback
Mr. Grant's analysis and insight into market inconsistencies, anomalies, and absurdities is refreshing in this age of me too financial journalism. The articles, taken from Grant's Interest Rate Observer, are as original in thought as they are uncompromising in their logic. I am a finance professional and feel that this book is a must read for any young entrant into the field. This perennial bear can teach even the most ardent bull to reflect before they leap. Beware if you've been nurtured on Money Magazine!

A series of vignettes from the early 80s to the early 90s. I love these "time capsule" books.
Grant is a good author, and he is bearish, which is instinctually satisfying for most creatures.
