When reading books on finances either personal or involving the entire economy, it baffles me when people complain about it not being interesting, or being misleading. These people are writing books on the facts, you can’t really mess with the facts, and regardless, facts ARE boring. If you really want to be entertained, pick up a thriller, a murder mystery…ANYTHING but one based on modern finances and the stock market.
Now to my point…PANIC: The Story of Modern Financial Insanity Edited by Michael Lewis is a bit dense. It is also a little hard to follow, BUT it is filled with good information. Isn’t that what really matters when reading boring shit like this? If you want to know more about this topic, JUST READ IT.
