I just ordered two books on the topic:A Failure of Capitalism: The Crisis of '08 and the Descent into Depression
andGetting Off Track: How Government Actions and Interventions Caused, Prolonged, and Worsened the Financial Crisis (Hoover Institution Press Publication
Given all the financial reports about to come out, it'd be great if a few people could share timelier information.
It seems like there's a huge chasm between the libertarian and majority people's explanation for what caused the crisis... too much government intervention vs not enough. I'm eager to learn some of the key facts that influence those positions.
