PRAISE FOR THE FINANCIAL CRISIS AND THE FREE MARKET CURE“Required reading. . . . Shows how our economic crisis was a failure, not of the free market, but of government.”—Charles Koch, Chairman and CEO, Koch Industries, Inc.“The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cureis a sophisticated yet accessible analysis of the causes and solutions to America’s financial meltdown.”—Ed Crane, President Emeritus of the Cato Institute“An indispensable contribution to the debate about the future of the American economy.”—Arthur Brooks, President, American Enterprise Institute“No one is better equipped to understand what is going on today and the causes of the financial crisis. Please pay attention to what he says here.”—Bernie Marcus, Chairman, The Marcus Foundation, and cofounder, Home Depot“Allison explains the unintended consequences of government policies and their impact on the financial crisis . . . and recommends practical steps to improve the economy and individual liberty.”—James M. Kilts, former Chairman and CEO, Gillette Company“[This is] the best, deepest explanation of what caused the crisis and the consequences of our government’s response to it.”—Yaron Brook, President and Executive Director, Ayn Rand Institute“John Allison is superb with his comprehensive and thought-provoking explanation for our current economic crisis and a clear and compelling path to a brighter future.”—Steve Reinemund, Dean, Wake Forest University Schools of Business, and retired Chairman and CEO, PepsiCoDid Wall Street cause the mess we are in? Should Washington place stronger regulations on the entire financial industry? Can we lower unemployment rates by controlling the free market?The answer is NO.Not only is free market capitalism good for the economy, says industry expert John Allison, it is our only hope for recovery. As the nation’s longest-serving CEO of a top-25 financial institution, Allison has had a unique inside view of the events leading up to the financial crisis. He has seen the direct effect of government incentives on the real estate market. He has seen how government regulations only make matters worse.And now, in this controversial wake-up call of a book, he has given us a solution.The Financial Crisis and the Free MarketCurereveals:Why regulation is bad for the market—and for the worldWhat we can do to promote a healthy free marketHow we can help end unemployment in AmericaThe truth about TARP and the bailoutsHow Washington can help Wall Street build a better future for everyoneWith shrewd insight, alarming insider details, and practical advice for today’s leaders, this electrifying analysis is nothing less than a call to arms for a nation on the brink. You’ll learn how government incentives helped blow up the real estate bubble to unsustainable proportions, how financial tools such as derivatives have been wrongly blamed for the crash, and how Congress fails to understand it should not try to control the market—and then completely mismanages it when it tries. In the end, you’ll understand why it’s so important to put “free” back in free market.It’s time for America to accept the truth: the government can’t fix the economy because the government wrecked the economy. This book gives us the tools, the inspiration—and the cure.
