BAM. Everyone must read. I need to read it like 10 more times to soak in all the info that is here. If you think the fringe economy doesn't affect you, you're wrong. If you want to understand the whole "subprime mortgage" deal, read this. Karger did his homework, and you can tell. This is a must-have handbook of economics, and it's totally accessible and easy to read.
