This is a plain-English explanation of how we got into the current economic disaster that developed out of the economics and politics of the housing boom and bust. The ldquo;creativerdquo; financing of home mortgages and the even more ldquo;creativerdquo; marketing of financial securities based on American mortgages to countries around the world, are part of the story of how a financial house of cards was built up-and then suddenly collapsed.The politics behind all this is another story full of strange twists. No punches are pulled when discussing politicians of either party, the financial dangers they created, or the distractions they created later to escape their own responsibility for what happened when the financial house of cards in the financial markets collapsed.What to do, now that we are in the midst of an economic disaster, is yet another story-one whose ending we do not yet know, but one whose outlines and implications are explored to reveal some surprising and sobering lessons.

Thomas Sowellhas taught economics at Cornell, UCLA, Amherst, and other academic institutions, and hisBasic Economicshas been translated into six languages. He is currently a scholar in residence at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. He has published in both academic journals and in such popular media as theWall Street Journal,Forbesmagazine, andFortune, and he writes a syndicated column that appears in newspapers across the country.
