5.0 out of 5 stars Should be Mandatory Reading, February 15, 2009
This review is from: Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse (Hardcover)
From Loren Keim, author of How to Sell Your Home in Any Market: 6 Reasons Why Your Home Isn't Selling... and What You Can Do to Fix Them:

Schools are teaching global warming and non-competitive sports instead of actual economics. I read the negative review on this book and couldn't help but think it was politically motivated. Anyone who actually takes the time to start reading the "economic recovery" plans in place can see they are politically motivated rather than based in sound economic and monetary policy.

I think this book should be read in high schools and colleges throughout the country, and be required reading by the media before going on the air or printing their next article.

He spells out the truth about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, something that can be found in the hours of testimony on YouTube, but is ignored by the mainstream press.

This simply is one of the easiest reads on economics. It is plain english, easy to follow, and highly understandable. The author gets and keeps your attention straight through.

Do the country a favor - buy extra copies and mail it to your friends!
