5.0 out of 5 stars Operation Paperclip, April 21 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I didn't expect this book to be as interesting and captivating as it turned out to be. Well written;though a bit prolix and sometimes in minute details; it is never boring, and there is much additional and recent information on the ex-Nazis employed in American military and scientific endeavours; Van Braun being the stellar example, though one of many.

4.0 out of 5 stars How Markets Fail by John Cassidy, Jan. 6 2010
This review is from: How Markets Fail (Hardcover)
How Markets Fail

Well written, for the general public. Covers history of economic theory and economists; overview over economic theory, with emphasis on the market and the problems of "bubbles" and "rational irrationality" of the market economy. I highly recommend it to anyone who want a readable and illunminating overview of econimics, and insight into the recent recession and its causes.
