The Great American Recession resulted in the loss of eight million jobs between 2007 and 2009. More than four million homes were lost to foreclosures. Is it a coincidence that the United States witnessed a dramatic rise in household debt in the years before the recession—that the total amount of debt for American households doubled between 2000 and 2007 to $14 trillion? Definitely not. Armed with clear and powerful evidence, Atif Mian and Amir Sufi reveal in House of Debt how the Great Recession and Great Depression, as well as the current economic malaise in Europe, were caused by a large run-up in household debt followed by a significantly large drop in household spending.

Though the banking crisis captured the public’s attention, Mian and Sufi argue strongly with actual data that current policy is too heavily biased toward protecting banks and creditors. Increasing the flow of credit, they show, is disastrously counterproductive when the fundamental problem is too much debt. As their research shows, excessive household debt leads to foreclosures, causing individuals to spend less and save more. Less spending means less demand for goods, followed by declines in production and huge job losses. How do we end such a cycle? With a direct attack on debt, say Mian and Sufi.  More aggressive debt forgiveness after the crash helps, but as they illustrate, we can be rid of painful bubble-and-bust episodes only if the financial system moves away from its reliance on inflexible debt contracts. As an example, they propose new mortgage contracts that are built on the principle of risk-sharing, a concept that would have prevented the housing bubble from emerging in the first place.

Thoroughly grounded in compelling economic evidence, House of Debt offers convincing answers to some of the most important questions facing the modern economy today: Why do severe recessions happen? Could we have prevented the Great Recession and its consequences? And what actions are needed to prevent such crises going forward?

The Wrong Kind of Muslim is a call to unite those of all faiths and of no faith in the struggle for universal freedom of conscience. Since 9/11, terrorists in Pakistan have killed over 40,000—and counting. Often risking his own life, Qasim Rashid journeys into the heart of that terrorism to unearth the untold story of those silenced by Taliban suicide bombings, secret police torture, and state sponsored religious persecution. Rashid exposes the horrifying truth about growing radicalism in Pakistan and its impact on Western security. But most importantly, Rashid uncovers the inspiring untold story of millions fighting back—and winning.

La crisi scoppiata nel 2008 ha cancellato otto milioni di posti di lavoro negli Stati Uniti, e più di quattro milioni di case sono state pignorate. È solo una coincidenza che negli anni precedenti gli Usa abbiano assistito a un vertiginoso indebitamento delle famiglie?
Armati di una stupefacente mole di dati, Atif Mian e Amir Sufi mostrano che tanto la Grande
recessione dei nostri giorni quanto la Grande depressione degli anni trenta sono state provocate da un aumento dei debiti delle famiglie, seguito da una significativa diminuzione delle spese per consumi. Così si formano, per poi esplodere drammaticamente, le bolle finanziarie, come esemplificano anche il boom e il successivo crollo del mercato immobiliare in Spagna e in Irlanda. Scoppiata la crisi, i governi statunitensi e la Federal Reserve hanno salvaguardato istituti finanziari e creditori, ma per riequilibrare il sistema avrebbero dovuto difendere i mutuatari in difficoltà, condonando almeno in parte i loro debiti.
Il problema non è la «stretta creditizia», il famigerato credit crunch: aumentare il flusso del credito è disastrosamente controproducente. Per evitare nuove bolle è necessario affrontare più direttamente il vero problema, cioè il debito, e interrompere il circolo vizioso delle perdite forzate a cui vanno incontro le famiglie indebitate: per esempio favorendo la diffusione dei contratti di mutuo a responsabilità condivisa.
Possiamo e dobbiamo prevenire il verifi carsi di nuove crisi: per farlo occorre un’analisi accurata, complessa e non ideologica di quanto successo negli ultimi anni. La casa del debito è in questo senso un contributo fondamentale, sorretto da ricerche meticolose ed esempi illuminanti, che si distingue dalla copiosa letteratura sulla Grande recessione per l’inedita capacità di alternare il primissimo piano sugli attori economici – a cominciare dalle famiglie – e uno sguardo a tutto campo, che dagli Stati Uniti muove verso l’Europa.

Das Schuldenhaus: Die globale Finanzkrise - warum der Konsument das Problem ist und nicht die Banken (German Edition)

Die globale Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise nahm in den USA ihren Anfang und stürzte in ihrer Folge nicht nur die Vereinigten Staaten, sondern auch das ohnehin verschuldete Europa in eine Wirtschaftskrise gigantischen Ausmaßes. Acht Millionen Jobs gingen allein in den USA zwischen 2007–2009 verloren, über vier Millionen mussten ihr Haus oder ihre Wohnung aufgeben. Die Kernbotschaft dieses Buches lautet: Eine Krisenbewältigung, die primär die Banken zu retten versucht, ist falsch. Denn Ursache der jüngsten Finanzkrise waren nicht die Banken, sondern hochverschuldete Konsumenten – also wir! Dieses von zwei renommierten amerikanischen Wissenschaftlern verfasste, allgemeinverständliche Buch, das in den USA und GB für Furore sorgte, wird auch bei uns zu Diskussionen sorgen.
