    Story
    (109)

    The media tells us that "deregulation" and "unfettered free markets" have wrecked our economy and will continue to make things worse without a heavy dose of federal regulation. But the real blame lies elsewhere. In Meltdown, best-selling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., unearths the real causes behind the collapse of housing values and the stock market---and it turns out the culprits reside more in Washington than on Wall Street.

    "Content OK, narration gets frustrating"
    Overall

    I understand why many feel antagonized by the narration style. I am trying to listen to the book a 2nd time. I might agree with what's being said but the narration style does over-play the points. I believe the polarized reviews ("less than one star" ) are a reflection of being rubbed off the wrong way by it far more than the content.

    The content is most definitely "one-sided", the author is explicit about his narrative, he advocates the Austrian school view of macro-economics and I wish I could find an opposing view stated so eloquently and convincingly. I write this as we hear how the stimulus is not quite working yet and ponder through its effects down the road. I've read some of Krugman's NYTimes pieces and they don't come close to being as convincing. I guess I'll keep looking.
