Not only is free market capitalism good for the economy,
says industry expert and Cato Institute President John Allison, it is our only hope for
recovery. Drawing upon his unique inside view of the events leading up to the financial
crisis, he has seen the direct effect of government incentives on the real estate market. He
has seen how government regulations only make matters worse. In The Financial Crisis
and the Free Market Cure, he posits a solution. With shrewd insight, insider details, and
practical advice for today’s leaders, Allison’s analysis is nothing less than a call to arms
for a nation on the brink. He examines how government incentives helped blow up the
real estate bubble to unsustainable proportions, how financial tools such as derivatives
have been wrongly blamed for the crash, and how Congress fails to understand it should
not try to control the market – and then completely mismanage it when it does. And, he
clarifies why it’s so important ultimately to put “free” back in free market. To RSVP for
