John Allison’s New Book on the Financial Crisis

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Kaizen interviewee and former BB&T bank CEO and Chairman John Allison has written a new book, The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why Pure Capitalism is the World Economy’s Only Hope. Released today, the book offers “shrewd insight, alarming insider details, and practical advice for today’s leaders… You’ll learn 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 mismanages it when it tries. In the end, you’ll understand why it’s so important to put “free” back in free market.”
