Lawrence Kotlikoff, a respected author and economist who is also a professor of Economics at Boston University, has written a book which talks about the 2008 meltdown and how there are chances that a similar occurrence will hit the future of the United States economy. The book takes a humorous and light hearted approach at explaining various facts and insights but has an underlying tone that seems to be affected by the worrisome economic state of the country. A leading economist, Lawrence Kotlikoff has unparalleled and unblemished insight into the effects of the meltdown and how we can fix it.
Jimmy Stewart is Dead is well written and offers an urgent and simple solution to the problem at hand. The text is lucid and gives vivid descriptions of various aspects of the solution through humorous characterization and easy to understand phrasing. The financial fix described in the book has been received amazingly well by five Economics Nobel Laureates! This clearly shows how implicitly clear and effective the contents of the book are.
The book will change how you think about the economy and financial markets. It will also help you see the government and its workings in a completely different light.
