The 2007 and 2008 crisis in world economics and financial markets have spawned many books This is one book that talks about the same crisis but perhaps in a much insightful way than any other Dwelling on the interplay between economic policies and financial markets this book is difficult to put down once you realise the enormous promise it holds when you read the 12 pages of the Introduction chapter That promise is not belied although John Cassidy the author could have been clearer and elaborate in the solutions he offersCassidy refers to the idea that a free market economy is sturdy and well grounded as an illusion of stability He calls this Utopian economics This forms the first of three parts of his book and includes eight fascinating chapters on the people and ideas that shaped itThis section of the book first lays out in great detail how economic theories and economists came about to have a large sphere of influence in central banks monetary policy matters and governments economic policies It describes how the Chicago School of economics propagating free market economy with almost zero regulations ended up enormously broadening their sphere of influence in the top echelons of the US Federal Reserve and the Treasury department of the US government What follows is an excellent exposition of 10 12 most influential economists including Adam Smith John Keynes Milton Friedman Robert Lucas and Friedrich Von Hayek as well as a couple of mathematicians such as Eugene FamaTaking the reader back and forth in time Cassidy beautifully connects the conservative economists with the neo liberalists mathematics with economics and evangelist led economic theories with existing practices in financial markets and governmental regulationsThe second part of Cassidy s book has him propagating reality based economics Cassidy believes that free market economists dangerously ignore the very possibility of speculative bubbles leave alone the fact that market prices during a speculative bubble provide incentives for individuals and companies to act in ways that are individually rational but immensely damaging to themselves and others He even gives examples of market failures beyond financial markets such as markets encouraging power companies to despoil the environment and cause global warming health insurers excluding sick people from coverage and CEOs stuffing their own pockets at the expense of their stockholdersThe second part is as elaborate articulate and insightful as the first Cassidy puts forth the economics linked issues of the prisoner s dilemma the market for lemons the beauty contest the rational herd and ponzi finance Like in the first part Cassidy beautifully uses the works of important contributors to economics to illustrate their and his own arguments For instance on the subject of market externalities Cassidy talks about a paper presented at Harvard University in the mid 1980s by W Brian Arthur a applied mathematician from Northern Ireland wherein Arthur argued that chance events and network effects can enable inferior technologies to beat out superior products and take over entire marketsCassidy however fails to convince why monopolies should be forced to co operate with budding competitors He talks about Microsoft refusing to make its products compatible with those of its rivals but does not rationalise why that is such a good thing in a competitive scenario and how much of sustainable benefits it will provide to consumersIn the third and last part of the book Cassidy turns to the real life happenings in financial markets and economies in the last 20 30 years and how they led to the complete financial meltdown in 2007 and 2008 This is again a very exciting read as Cassidy elaborately criticises Alan Greenspan s blind eye to the speculative bubbles in the real estate market fanatic reduction of interest rates to artificially pump up the economy after the dot com bust in 1999 2000 and dangerously preventing regulators such as Commodity Futures Trading Commission from laying out capital adeuacy and risk containment measures for complex financial products like credit default swaps and other complex financial derivativesCassidy lays out in good detail the history of mortgages including the sub prime chain and the bubble in real estate prices There are rare insights into how the securitisation of mortgages by banks and Wall Street firms grew in size and led to extreme risks that ultimately exploded in the face of every financial market participant He also points to the failure of capitalism in that tax payers money had to be used to bail out the failures in the marketWhile Cassidy is great in describing what happened he is very weak in pointing out appropriate solutions in much detail He does however says that free markets should not be devoid of active government intervention when prices are going up and building into a bubble But Cassidy should have been sharp and pointed out that if firms get too big to fail then they should be too big to succeed in the first place Or if free markets are to be allowed without restrictions then any failures should also be allowed to happen freely without government bailouts If profits are made by everyone during a bubble then losses can also be borne by everyone when the bubble burstsHe also fails to highlight enough the dangers of uncontrolled leverage in not just financial derivatives but also in complex financial structured products whether traded directly between counterparties or traded on a financial exchangeBut on the whole the book is a great read Solution Manual for Organic Chemistry rduction How Markets Fail The Logic of Economic In How Markets Fail John Cassidy describes the Finding Home
