— James Surowiecki, author of The Wisdom of Crowds

 

“A great read. . . . HFM offers a brilliant financial professional’s view of the economic situation in real time, from September 2007, when problems in financial markets began to surface, until late summer 2009.”

Booklist

 

n+1 is the rightful heir to Partisan Review and the New York Review of Books. It is rigorous, curious and provocative.”

— Malcolm Gladwell

From the Back Cover:

The First Book from n+1—an Essential Chronicle of Our Financial Crisis

HFM: Where are you going to buy protection on the U.S. government's credit? I mean, if the U.S. defaults, what bank is going to be able to make good on that contract? Who are you going to buy that contract from, the Martians?

n+1: When does this begin to feel like less of a cyclical thing, like the weather, and more of a permanent, end-of-the-world kind of thing?

HFM: When you see me selling apples out on the street, that's when you should go stock up on guns and ammunition.

About the Author:

Founded in 2004, it has been praised by the New York Times, TLS, Boston Globe, and Le Revue Des Deux Mondes, and reviled by the New Criterion and Gawker. In 2006 it won the Utne Independent Press Award for Best Writing. An anthology of its most significant essays was published in 2008 by Suhrkamp, in German.
