Format: Hardcover
If you can't afford the $900 or so that an annual subscription costs, why not do the next best thing and read this best-of compilation of Grant's Interest Observer. See James Grant fulminate on the last two bubbles and Alan Greenspan, and eventually be proved right. Learn some fundamental analysis and contrarian thinking in the mean time. Maybe lose less money in the next bubble. One star knocked off for not reproducing graphs mentioned in the text.

This is a well written and insightful book that contains numerous articles in Grant's Interest Rate Observer where they have correctly predicted economic errors that the market (or Mr Market) seemingly ignored.

Now I am not going to say that the book is for everyone. It is not. The author (James Grant) is idiosyncratic: he is a fan of returning to the gold standard and that permeates through his writings. But he is one of the most insightful analysts/journalists out there and his writing contains pearls of wisdom, mixed with economic/business history and his analysis is usually spot-on.

What this book does is provide a reader with a succinct analysis over many years of bunglings by numerous luminaries. It provides to readers that having clarity of thought and not being wrapped up in panics/manias, should lead to persistently above-market returns.

Mr. Market always miscalculates and the author of this book predicted the housing bubble that burst last year. This book is a collection of Grant's Interest Rate Observer letters from 1990s to the present economic crisis. He mainly blames human nature for leading us to where we are today. He says that the cause that led to the housing and stock market bubble was the lenders' willingness to loan money to speculators or house flippers. It was not the low interest rate policies of the Fed as many might believe. However, our regulators are not without fault. They set the stage in the 1970s with the deregulation of financial markets.

I really liked the author's description of the financial instruments, especially CDS derivatives. Even if you are not a financial expert, you should be able to understand it because the author has described it in simple terms. Although there is so much evidence supporting the idea that Mr. Market miscalculates, I am amazed at how many institutional investors believe in efficient market theory and have managed their investments through indexing.

I love this book - it's a series of potentially heavy-going economic observations, packaged into a more accessible format. Jim Grant certainly has a talent, like Krugman and Roubini, for expressing complex ideas to the (comparative)layman. A must-read for finance professionals and students alike.
