Contraportada:

The financial crisis of 2008 and subsequent Great Recession demolished many cherished beliefs--most significantly, the theory that financial markets always get things right. Justin Fox's The Myth of the Rational Market explains where that idea came from, and where it went wrong. As much an intellectual whodunit as a cultural history of the perils and possibilities of risk, it also brings to life the people and ideas that forged modern finance and investing--from the formative days of Wall Street through the Great Depression and into the financial calamities of today. It's a tale featuring professors who made and lost fortunes, battled fiercely over ideas, beat the house at blackjack, wrote bestselling books, and played major roles on the world stage. It's also a story of free-market capitalism's war with itself.

Críticas:

"Superbly accurate and readable... Clearly the result of many years of research and reading, ... it is a model of what the popularization of social science can be, but too rarely is, and it will continue to be read when the current crisis is many years behind us."--American Scientist

"Justin Fox is a truly insightful fellow who can see things with his own eyes--a rare, very rare attribute."--Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of The Black Swan

"Impressively broad and richly researched."--Financial Times

"Do we really need yet another book about the financial crisis? Yes, we do -- because this one is different. Fox's book is not an idle exercise in intellectual history, which makes it a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the mess we're in."--Paul Krugman, New York Times Book Review

"A lucid, lively and learned account."--Barron's
