The Economists' Voice: Top Economists Take On Today's
Problems featured a core collection of accessible, timely
essays on the challenges facing today's global markets and
financial institutions. The Economists' Voice 2.0: The
Financial Crisis, Health Care Reform, and More is the next
installment in this popular series, gathering together the
strongest essays published in The Economist's Voice, a
nonpartisan online journal, so that students and general readers
can gain a deeper understanding of the financial developments
shaping their world.
This collection contains thirty-two essays written by academics,
economists, presidential advisors, legal specialists, researchers,
consultants, and policy makers. They tackle the plain economics and
architecture of health care reform, its implications for society
and the future of the health insurance industry, and the value of
the health insurance subsidies and exchanges built into the law.
They consider the effects of financial regulatory reform, the
possibilities for ratings reform, and the issue of limiting
bankers' pay. An objective examination of the financial crisis and
bank bailouts results in two indispensable essays on investment
banking regulation after Bear Stearns and the positives and
negatives of the Paulson/Bernanke bailout. Contributors weigh the
merits of future rescues and suggest alternative strategies for
addressing the next financial crisis. A final section examines a
unique array of topics: the stability of pension security bonds;
the value of a carbon tax, especially in fostering economic and
environmental sustainability; the counterintuitive perils of net
neutrality; the unforeseen consequences of government debt; the
meaning of the Google book search settlement; and the unexploited
possibilities for profit in NFL overtime games.
