August Reading: This Time Is Different and The Crash Course

In light of this and this and this (let alone locally this and this), here's what's on the night stand.   

This Time is Different 
by Carmen M. Reinhart and Kenneth S. Rogoff

A comprehensive overview of financial crises during the past 8 centuries...and why this time really is the game-changer. 

A condensed abstract of their ideas may be found in this pdf.

Book overview, reviews, comments, info about authors, ordering here at Amazon.

And, if convinced that this time is--really!--different, and wanting to take action, check out Chris Martenson's  The Crash Course: The Unsustainable Future of Our Economy, Energy, and Environment. 

Ordering, summary, comments, here
