The sub-prime mortgage crisis is only the beginning; a more profound economic and political restructuring is on its way.

According to Charles R. Morris, the astronomical leverage at investment banks, with their hedge-fund and private-equity clients, virtually guarantees massive disruption in global markets. A quarter century of free-market zealotry that extolled asset striping, abusive lending, and hedge-fund secrecy will come crashing down with it.

The Trillion Dollar Meltdown explains how we got here, and what is about to happen. Download and start listening now!

    " This guy nailed it, apparently before it all happened, but certainly after. His insight into how we got into this mess is nearly perfect. If you want to know what happened with the banks, the broader financial services industry, and our economy in 2007 - 20??, I recommend reading this book first. "

    " Published in February 2008, this is a great analysis of how we got where we are economically, with a conclusion that the markets having over-deregulated now need to reregulate. In the afterword, the author mentions that the free-market mania that has led the country astray has also destroyed healthcare availability for many Americans. I highly recommend this book. "

    " Morris doesn't bother to explain most of the more obscure terms and processes, so the about a third of the book was unintelligible to me. "

    " Basically the what, when, where, why and how of our current economy. Mr Morris runs the gamut from current account deficits and exchange rates to financial regulation and the government to sub-prime loans and credit default swaps, as well as providing some suggestions for where we go from here. It is readable without much of an Economics or Finance background as Mr Morris provides a lot of explanations, though some parts were challenging for me and my background is in Economics. "
