What’s on Union’s Economics Alumni’ Nightstand?

The Financial Crises and the Free Market Cure by John A. Allison.

Mr. Allison writes from firsthand experience as the former CEO of BB&T, a successful financial enterprise in the Southeastern United States. As I recall, he was CEO for at least 20 years. He is now the CEO of the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank in Washington DC which I have supported for several years. His writing is understandable and factual. He illustrates why the free market approach to solving financial problems is far superior to the government solving these problems which in most cases it created in the first place. This is a message that is rarely heard today as the government and the supporting media do not want it to be heard. Union faculty and students will appreciate the economic philosophy of John A. Allison.
