More Books of 2008: A Credit Crisis Reader

A few people have asked, so here is a collection of the books mentioned here during 2008 that bore most specifically on the current credit crisis. It is, in other words, a little less wide-ranging than the earlier list I posted here. Again, not all of these books were published during 2008.

  • Lombard Street: A Description of the Money Market (Amazon)
  • The Panic of 1907: Lessons Learned from the Market’s Perfect Storm (Amazon)
  • Normal Accidents (Amazon)
  • A Demon of Our Own Design (Amazon)
  • The New Paradigm for Financial Markets: The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What it Means (Amazon)
  • The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable (Amazon)
  • The Misbehavior of Markets (Amazon)
  • The Subprime Solution (Amazon)
  • The Trillion Dollar Meltdown (Amazon)
  • Devil Take the Hindmost (Amazon)
  • Fooling Some of the People All of the Time (Amazon)
  • Money of the Mind (Amazon)
  • The Credit Crunch: Housing Bubbles, Globalization, and the Worldwide Economic Crisis (Amazon)
  • Traders, Guns & Money: Knowns and Unknowns in the Dazzling World of Derivatives (Amazon)
  • Infectious Greed: How Deceit and Risk Corrupted the Financial Markets (Amazon)

Whew. That’s it for now.
