This article from Vanity Fair makes it easy to understand what caused the world’s economic meltdown. Short, clear, & covering all the bases, Nobel-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz’s piece, “Capitalist Fools,” tells a long story that begins w/ Ayn Rand, her acolyte, Alan Greenspan, & Ronnie Reagan, and continues to the Crash of 2008. POWERFUL & GRIM!!!
As a kicker, there’s another piece from the same issue about a few gilded Wall Streeters & their mighty fall.
