Empire of Debt: The Rise Of An Epic Financial Crisis
William Bonner
0471739022
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In no-nonsense prose, Empire of Debt confronts critical concerns about the position of the United States as the world's leading economy and great military might. For many years, the United States has been the country from which others sought advice, money, and a high return on investment. At the same time, Uncle Sam has descended from being the world's largest creditor to its greatest debtor. Why the paradox?

The team that conceived the international bestseller Financial Reckoning Day offers the first in-depth look at how Americans abandoned sound traditions of economic freedom, personal liberty, and fiscal restraint, favoring instead government control of the economy, unfettered deficit spending, gluttonous consumption, and fearless military adventurism, all of which have ravaged the business environment, devastated...

Generation Debt: Why Now Is a Terrible Time to Be Young
Anya Kamenetz

February 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Surveying the economic realities facing today's 20- and 30-somethings, 24-four-old Kamenetz decides, "It's not too dramatic to say that the nation is abandoning its children." Thanks to skyrocketing tuition and changes in federal funding, college students are graduating with an average of almost $20,000 in loans at the same time that jobs have become scarcer, real wages have dropped and the cost of health care has soared. Is it any wonder that kids are boomeranging home and racking up credit card debt? Kamenetz, who first wrote about these issues for the Village Voice, intertwines an analytical overview of the new economic obstacles with interviews of the financially strapped and descriptions of her own experience struggling to make ends meet as a freelance journalist. Her book is livelier than Tamara Draut's...

Book Description
Few economic issues have such far-reaching implications as excessive government budget deficits and debt. It is almost universally agreed that fiscal imbalances retard economic growth, impose heavy burdens on future generations, and heighten the risk of financial market disruption. It is also agreed, however, that correcting such imbalances is a difficult task. Around the world, countries are attempting to address the problem of excessive deficits and debt. This issue is at the core of many political and economic debates. To gain a better understanding of the problem and to consider potential solutions, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City sponsored a symposium on Budget Deficits and Debt: Issues and Options at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on August 31-September 2, 1995. A distinguished group of central bankers,...


Congress, Human Nature, and the Federal Debt
Cole Speicher Brembeck
0275936740
May 1991
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This volume takes a noneconomic approach to the issue of the federal deficit. By identifying the behavioral dynamics common to all people, Brembeck demonstrates how human interests perpetuate the deficit and proposes that solutions to the worsening crisis can be explored by shifting the primary focus away from money, budgets, and expenditures and toward people, power, and politics. The essays discuss different aspects of this human factor in the federal debt and aim at redefining the central issue of the debt debate based on the premise, so convincingly developed, that the debt is a human, not a fiscal, problem.

About the Author
COLE S. BREMBECK is Professor and Associate Dean for International Studies, emeritus, at Michigan State University.

Hamilton's Blessing: The Extraordinary Life and Times of Our National Debt
John Steele Gordon
0140270159
January 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Over the past couple of decades, our national debt has become a favorite political football for Democrats and Republicans alike. Yet few Americans seem aware that the debt has a long and (mostly) honorable history. Alexander Hamilton considered it a kind of political Krazy Glue, which would also spur American industry by keeping taxes high. This borrowing power enabled the North to win the Civil War without wrecking its economy and rescued us from the Great Depression. John Steele Gordon doesn't deny the dangers of an entire nation living on credit; indeed, he believes that our fiscal affairs are a mess. But he puts this mess in fascinating perspective. And he's quick to see the human side of economic behavior: "One problem," he writes, "is that human nature predisposes us to recognize depression easily and...
