Getting off track : how government actions and interventions caused, prolonged, and worsened the financial crisis by John B Taylor( )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history, financial crises have always been caused by excesses--frequently monetary excesses--which lead to a boom and an inevitable bust. In our current crisis it was a housing boom and bust that in turn led to financial turmoil in the United States and other countries. How did everything deteriorate so suddenly and dramatically? In Getting Off Track: How Government Actions and Interventions Caused, Prolonged, and Worsened the Financial Crisis, Hoover fellow and Stanford economist John B. Taylor offers empirical research to explain what caused the current financial crisis, what prolonged it, and what worsened it dramatically more than a year after it began. The author tells how unusually easy monetary policy helped set the crisis in motion, as interest rates at the Federal Reserve and several other central banks deviated from historical regularities. He explains monetary interaction with the subprime mortgage problem, showing how the use of these mortgages, especially the adjustable-rate variety, led to excessive risk taking. In the United States this was encouraged by government programs designed to promote home ownership, a worthwhile goal but overdone in retrospect. Looking ahead, the author suggests a set of principles to follow to prevent misguided actions and interventions in the future. -- Book Description

Our schools and our future : --are we still at risk? by Paul E Peterson( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When A nation at risk was published 20 years ago, it was seen as something of the Peyton Place of education reports: it stunned the establishment, readers threw up their hands and proclaimed themselves shocked by it, but no one could tear themselves away from reading it. Now, on the 20th anniversary of the original report, the Koret Task Force tells a no less compelling story."--Back cover

Impostors in the temple : a blueprint for improving higher education in America by Martin Anderson( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Impostors in the Temple, a hard-hitting, eye-opening book about the intellectual and moral decay of American universities and colleges, has been updated and expanded in this new paperback edition from the Hoover Institution Press. Martin Anderson - a former White House policy adviser to Presidents Nixon and Reagan and a member of the academic world for more than three decades - takes U.S. academics to task in this powerful book, which has been hailed for its scope and clarity. Topics include the corrupt practices now rampant in our universities: how professors have abandoned the classroom, turning over much of their teaching responsibilities to unqualified students, and how intellectual standards, in both grading and research, have sunk to new lows. Anderson offers a bold blueprint for restoring the intellectual integrity of American universities, one that would allow them to achieve the greatness they are capable of. He concludes on an optimistic note, pointing out that many of our elite universities have recognized the seriousness of the intellectual declines that took place during the 1970s and 1980s and are beginning, quietly and slowly, to clean their academic houses

The best defense? : legitimacy and preventive force by Abraham D Sofaer( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, which represents the conclusions of the Stanford Task Force on Preventive Force, raises critical questions surrounding the use of preventive force: what are the dangers and limitations of relying on preventive force in dealing with security threats? How does preventive force differ from preemption and other uses of force considered lawful? ... The book describes current threats and reviews the extent to which international organizations and states regard them as justifying increased reliance on preventive force. It examines the different types of preventive actions currently used in international practice and evaluates these actions in light of United Nations standards."--Back cover
