Business & Finance • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

With decades of economic analysis behind him, Sowell achieves a clear and concise assessment of the housing debacle, which is enhanced by Robertson Dean's methodical narration. Sowell provides a cogent narrative of causal events and points out connections beyond the standard simplistic discussions of predatory lenders and corrupt politicians. However, the author’s conservative leanings cause him, at times, to make connections that will be questionable for some listeners—such as holding groups like the Environmental Protection Agency partly responsible for the economic meltdown. Overall, Dean's role as narrator is pivotal to the production as he emphasizes key points for the listener. His delivery keeps the potentially dry topic of economics compelling and comprehensible.
