Editorial Reviews

"The analysis is keen and provocative, and the conclusions unorthodox as ever." -Publishers Weekly"Dr. Batra vividly portrays the way in which public disgust for corruption, both corporate and federal, is becoming a serious force for political change." -Dr. W. Curtiss Priest, Director, Center for Information, Technology, & Society, MIT"The most thoroughgoing assault on the Maestro's legacy so far." -Cecil Johnson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Greenspan's Fraud"As always, his economic arguments are expressed elegantly." -Publishers Weekly on Greenspan's Fraud"In this chilling exposé of one of the most powerful men of our time, Ravi Batra reveals Greenspan for who he secretly is: An ideologue who has waged war on the American Dream and imperiled the world economy." -David Callahan, author of The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead on Greenspan's Fraud"When it comes to the bottom line so beloved of economists, one can learn a lot about events by thinking about them in cyclical regularities, of which Batra gives a novel and brilliant exposition." -Lester C. Thurow on Ravi Batra"Ravi Batra has made an outstanding reputation in the United States as an international economic theorist in the best Western tradition." -Leonard Silk, New York Times on Ravi Batra
