I really enjoyed this book. While Mr. Greenspan is not really a great author, his insight and perspective are unique and clarifying. Mr. Greenspan has strong libertarian tendencies, but demonstrates realism and practicality in his positions. He blasts tax-break and spend republicans just as strongly as tax and spend democrats (if not more so). He provides glimpses into how several recent presidents and their staffs have approached economics and the politics of taxation, interest rates, and spending. Even the personal vignettes were interesting enough. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the politics of US economic policies.
This is fun and funny, interesting and educational. It did everything I was hoping for and more. It delved into both the technical details and personalities of the sub-prime meltdown. It reads like a history but is kept interesting by interweaving finance, personalities, politics and humanity. Anyone who is interested in the meltdown or just interested in the stories of the very few people that saw it coming, this is a must read.
