Age of Greed

The Triumph of Finance and the Decline of America

In The Age of Greed, a sweeping, fast-paced, and incisive narrative, Jeff Madrick shows how greed bred America’s economic ills over the last forty years. Cited as one of the top ten business and economics books of the spring by Publishers Weekly, it traces the roots of economic inequity and instability through stories of the politicians, economists, and financiers who declared a moral battle for freedom but instead gave rise to an age of greed.
