Curtiss Priest, Director, Center for Information, Technology,& Society, MIT Praise for Greenspan's Fraud: "The most thoroughgoing assault on the Maestro's legacy so far." -Cecil Johnson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram "As always, his economic arguments are expressed elegantly." -Publishers Weekly "In this chilling expose of one of the most powerful men of our time, Ravi Batra reveals Greenspan for who he secretly is: An ideologue who has waged war on the American Dream and imperiled the world economy." -David Callahan, author of The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead Praise for Ravi Batra: "When it comes to the bottom line so beloved of economists, one can learn a lot about events by thinking about them in cyclical regularities, of which Batra gives a novel and brilliant exposition." -Lester C.
