Book recommendation

In my Doom Loop I recommended strongly 13 Bankers by Simon Johnson and James Kwak, a book with an excellent historical perspective on the financial crisis, now approaching three years in duration, from which we cannot seem to extricate ourselves.  Simon Johnson also writes regular columns on the current episodes; don’t miss his latest piece, in the December 2, 2010 New York Times, entitled “How likely is default in Europe?”:  http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/12/02/how-likely-is-default-in-europe/
