Sowell, The Housing Boom and Bust

If you want to know what happened with the housing boom and bust, my guess is that you'd be hard to find a better resource than Thomas Sowell's new book, The Housing Boom and Bust.

He was recently interviewed by Peter Robinson on "Uncommon Knowledge." It's a helpful intro to the book and to the issues:
  1. The economics of the housing boom
  2. The politics of the housing boom
  3. The origins and unique features of the housing bust
  4. The pitfalls of New Deal thinking
  5. The economic proposals of the Obama administration
