"Greenspan's Fraud: How Two Decades of His Policies Have Undermined the Global Economy" By Dr. Ravi Batra, Published May 2005.
Reviews "Here, finally, is the dark truth about Alan Greenspan. In this chilling exposé 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. Greenspan's Fraud is a terrifying book."--David Callahan, author of The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead "As always, his economic arguments are expressed elegantly."-- Publishers Weekly
"Ravi Batra is one of the world's most controversial economists. Beneath the surface of his often contentious conclusions lies a deeper source of the controversy. He does not accept one of the most fundamental fallacies of modern macroeconomic theory--the assumption that macroeconomic policy has no distribution effects.... Professor Batra turns this oversimplifying assumption upside down.... [W]e cannot and should not ignore him..."--William A. Barnett, Oswald Distinguished Professor of Macroeconomics, University of Kansas and Editor, Macroeconomic Dynamics
