Written by Barry Ritholtz, one of today'smost popular economic bloggers and a well-established industrypundit, this book skillfully explores how the United States evolvedfrom a rugged independent nation to a soft BailoutNation-where financial firms are allowed to self-regulate ingood times, but are bailed out by taxpayers in bad times.

Entertaining and informative, this book clearly shows you howyears of trying to control the economy with easy money has finallycaught up with the federal government and how its practice ofrepeatedly rescuing Wall Street has come back to bite them.
