After the Crash: Designing a Depression-free Economy (1444333070) cover image


This book analyzes in a new way the causes of the current crash by showing how such events derive from real estate bubbles and their interactions with banks and other lenders.
  • Analyzes the current crisis of the real estate crash and explains the recurring cycle which led to it
  • Examines why frequent assessments are crucial to making the property tax an effective method of preventing speculative real estate bubbles
  • Combines theoretical analysis with observed cycles of land speculation to demonstrate the impact on the modern economy
