"A concise explanation of capitalism's moral and economic superiority to all forms of socialism, including America's current mixed-economy welfare state. Bernstein shows that the current crisis is essentially similar to the Great Depression in its causation and in the steps necessary to resolve it. The book's concluding section applies moral and economic principles to the current economic crisis, showing that government intervention is its cause and a policy of laissez-faire its necessary solution. Furthermore, socialist/statist policies are universally the cause of social calamities and that the answer lies in individual rights and laissez-faire capitalism. The principles that this book clearly articulates are timeless; in diverse forms, the conflicts these principles explain will recur repeatedly throughout history."

This author would be well-advised to read Donald Gibson's book (Wealth, Power and the Crisis in Laissez-Faire Capitalism) and Satyajit Das' book (Extreme Money) and Michael Perelman's book (The Invention of Capitalism) and everything he can on credit derivatives, credit default swaps, rehypothecation, repos or repurchase agreements, Matt Taibbi's articles on rigged markets, Pam Martens' articles on rigged markets, Nomi Prins' book (Other People's Money), Louis Brandeis classic by the same title (Other People's Money ...) and Paul Craig Roberts' latest book.
