Incoherent: Stiglitz would fail Econ 101

What was most disappointing about Joseph E. Stiglitz’s story?

Stiglitz clearly describes many problems and their causes, but he unfortunately glosses over far too many, giving a very slanted picture of the financial markets. In the process, he makes circular and contradictory arguments that devolve into incoherence.

I find it difficult to believe that Stiglitz is so misinformed on market behavior, regulation, and basic economic principles. The only other explanation is that he's guilty of the spreading the same self-serving propaganda that he pillories the bankers of doing.

Skip this one - there are far better books out there.

Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

The performance was also painful to listen to: Dick Hill's sneering voice drips with contempt and reduces the credibility of the book even further.
