Product Description & Reviews

The #1 New York Times bestseller: "It is the work of our greatest financial journalist, at the top of his game. And it's essential reading."―Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair The real story of the crash began in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn't shine and the SEC doesn't dare, or bother, to tread: the bond and real estate derivative markets where geeks invent impenetrable securities to profit from the misery of lower- and middle-class Americans who can't pay their debts. The smart people who understood what was or might be happening were paralyzed by hope and fear; in any case, they weren't talking. Michael Lewis creates a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his #1 bestseller Liar's Poker. Out of a handful of unlikely-really unlikely-heroes, Lewis fashions a story as compelling and unusual as any of his earlier bestsellers, proving yet again that he is the finest and funniest chronicler of our time.

By Brand: Cambridge University Press

The Language of Economics: Socially Constructed Vocabularies and Assumptions
By Palgrave Macmillan
ean: 9783319339801, isbn: 9783319339801,
This Palgrave Pivot demonstrates that the inherited vocabularies of economics and other social sciences contain socially constructed words and theories that bias our very understanding of history and markets, bridging the empirical and moral dimensions of economics in general and inequality in particular. Wealth, GDP, hierarchies, and inequality are socially constructed words infused with moral overtones that academic philosophers and policy analysts have used to raise questions about

Language and Money in Rabelais (Renaissance and Baroque)
By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
ean: 9780820427348, isbn: 0820427349,
Combining speech act theory and economic history with the work of Marx, Foucault, and Goux, this study investigates representations of economic and linguistic exchanges in the novels of Rabelais in order to view the tensions within the society of Renaissance France. The various chapters critically examine the logic of substitution in the texts, the relationship between credit and the practice of interpretation, and Rabelais's thought on the status of language in the context of budding

Economics As Discourse: An Analysis of the Language of Economists (Recent Economic Thought)
By Brand: Springer
ean: 9780792390466, isbn: 0792390466,
1 Warren J. Samuels The study of economics as discourse requires a perspective that focuses on the relationships among knowledge (or truth), discourse (or lan­ guage), and meaning. Central to this task is the recognition that the con­ duct of economic analysis uses words and that words embody meanings that are applied to the object of study, but do not necessarily derive from that object although they define that object for us. Knowledge Economists are engaged in efforts to understand and

Strategies of Economic Order: German Economic Discourse, 1750-1950 (Ideas in Context)
By Brand: Cambridge University Press
ean: 9780521619431, isbn: 0521619432,
This book provides an overview of two hundred years of German economic thought from the Steetswissenschaften of the eighteenth century to National Socialism and the Social Market. Whereas Classical Economics emphasized value, distribution and production, German economic thought had a long-running tradition of human need and the varying conditions for order. By taking this latter perspective, the usual contrast of market and planning approaches to economic organization is subsumed by an approach

Minding the Machine: Languages of Class in Early Industrial America
By University of California Press
ean: 9780520227811, isbn: 0520227816,
In this innovative book, Stephen P. Rice offers a new understanding of class formation in America during the several decades before the Civil War. This was the period in the nation's early industrial development when travel by steamboat became commonplace, when the railroad altered concepts of space and time, and when Americans experienced the beginnings of factory production. These disorienting changes raised a host of questions about what machinery would accomplish. Would it promote equality
