I have a review of Pop! Why Bubbles Are Great For The Economy by Daniel Gross. It’s a quick read. Time well spent.
The Good: A breezy and perceptive argument that creative destruction and bubbles go hand-in-hand.
The Bad: This thesis isn?t really novel, once constituting a major tradition within economics.
The Bottom Line: Canny and readable, propelled by brief histories of several transformative euphorias.
