Anniversary reading

On the first anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers it is hard to escape discussion of the economic crisis. It is generating copious amounts of coverage in newspapers, on television and on the radio.

However, for those who want to read even more on the subject here are a couple of useful round-ups. Michael Savage – a City-based investment banker rather than the American “shock jock” of the same name – has written a review essay on books on the subject on the Culture Wars website.

Meanwhile, Mark Thoma, an associate professor of economics at the University of Oregon, has compiled a comprehensive list of readings on the “what has gone wrong with economics” debate.
