The financial crisis has spawned a raft of audiobooks, but few are as lucid, constructive, and fair-minded as this one. A Nobel laureate and former chief economist at the World Bank, Stiglitz is a remarkably clear thinker and writer. While his liberal views won't be shared by every listener, he's equally critical of both the Obama and Bush administrations' handling of the debacle. Dick Hill's narration is spot- on: perfectly paced, warm, and comfortable with the material. (Unlike many people, he pronounces “Keynes” correctly.) Hill mirrors the author's conversational style, his exasperation and humor, and even his moralizing tone as Stiglitz lays out his suggestions for how America must respond to the sins of the financial industry.
