The Road From Ruin : Instant analysis since the collapse of the financial system in the fall of 2008 has produced no end of ideas about what to do - ranging from those of free market ideologues (let the market do its work and damn the consequences) to extreme government interventionists determined to keep the animal spirits of capitalism penned up.
But if there is anything worse than toxic financial assets it is toxic ideas. We need to reject the old orthodoxies and conventional wisdoms. Matthew Bishop and Michael Green take a step back and analyze what can be learned from financial crises of the past - from the Tulip Craze of the seventeenth century through the Great Depression of the 1930s, Japan's Great Deflation, and the Long-Term Capital debacle of the 1990s to the unprecedented interventions of the government during the past year - to set the agenda for a reformed twenty-first-century capitalism. The result is an enlightening perspective on what set us on the road to ruin, as well as road signs to guide us back to prosperity.
