by Team Dinks on June 29, 2010 · 16 comments

Hey Dinks! Got another book giveaway for you.  We haven’t read it ourselves yet, but we’ll share part of the press release down below so you can get a feel for what you’d be in store for. And we’re giving out THREE of these!  Scroll down to see how to enter…

The Fearful Rise of Markets: Global Bubbles, Synchronized Meltdowns, and How To Prevent Them in the Future by John Authers

From their press release: In The Fearful Rise of Markets, Authers addresses the risks of a developing “New Bubble,” and provides insights and solutions for the financial markets for 2010 and beyond. Authers also illuminates the multiple roots of the repeated financial crises of the past two decades, including massive shifts in the global balance of economic power; the shift of key decisions from banks to capital markets funded with “other people’s money”; the wholesale financialization of key asset classes that were once closed to most investors; and massive failures of both academic theory and government policy.

John Authers provides both concerned readers and policymakers alike with answers on why financial market bubbles occur more frequently, why this could be happening again right now, and what to do about it. Readers will find in The Fearful Rise of Markets:

  • An exploration into the inner workings of today’s highly unstable, crisis-prone financial system with an eye to the future potential problems
  • Prescriptions for reforming global finance – and sound advice for individual
  • investors in the meantime
  • A global view with comprehensive context: how we got here, and why we’re still at risk.

In The Fearful Rise of Markets readers will gain the historic perspective of the current financial crisis on a global level that is needed if we are to work out how to prevent a future crisis.
