Books About the Economy Hit the Shelves

Posted: Updated:

With the economy acting all crazy (for lack of a better word), books are now hitting the shelves (or your Kindle) at record speeds, contemplating what went wrong, how to fix the situation, ways to keep your job and anything else you can think of that has to do with money, leadership and how to not make the same economic mistakes again. I spoke with a sampling of these authors on my radio show and compiled them in this post.
