One thing I didn't know but learned from reading Michael Hirsh's book, Capital Offense, was that Prof. Shiller was fired from his advisory role to the NY Federal Reserve Bank - - after 14 years - - by the new chair, TImothy Geithner, after he raised the possibility of falling housing rates! And replaced with Catherine Mann, a real shill of the first order, the so-called economist who promotes jobs offshoring based upon the ASSUMPTION, that for each job offshored, two jobs are magically created in America! Excellent book, and although not a Shiller fan, I believe he is entirely, albeit on the conservative side, correct! [As was Iris Mack, who questioned Harvard's derivatives position, fired by Larry Summers and company.]

I'd heard that this book was a classic. It deserves that status, showing with clear statistics and descriptions how the stock market depends mostly on the herd following one another. It's a far cry from depending on rational capitalists as many suppose - and unnerving in its implications to public policy.

This is a must read for anybody interested in the dynamics and inherent instability of financial markets. It is not easy to read and requires a basic knowledge of economics and statistics to full appreciate the book. The first edition was published just before the meltdown of markets in March 2000. Professor Shiller was also one of the few people who foresaw the collapse of the US housing market and the negative consequences around the world that followed from it. Robert J. Shiller together with his colleague Karl Case are the authors of the widely quoted Case-Shiller housing index
