This is really a book. More like a zany romp of sort of related observations, but, it's fun to look through and entertaining. ( )

Extremely disappointing. Although this contained a fascinating history of monetary policy and financial economics, it was too often just stringing together piles of quotations, without adding much.

In speeches he gave on "The Coming Credit Crash," Das, an international consultant to financial institutions and corporations, provided insights into the problematic structure and risks of the global financial system. In an analysis drawing on the ideas of philosophers as well as economists, Das critiques the "financialization" of everyday life behind such recent trends as the housing boom-and-bust, "casino banking," the "doomsday debt machine," and "botox economics."… (more)
