My book, The Myth of the Free Market: The Role of the State in a Capitalist Economy, is now available at Bakersfield's Russo's Books. Most of you who have been following this blog, or listening to the radio program, already have an idea about what I say in the book (with the exception of the middle five chapters, which are historical).
Still, the last four chapters, which explain the roots of the market meltdown, will prove enlightening. Specifically, the story behind what you see in Table 9.1 and Figure 12.2 will force you to rethink what you know about the bailouts.
