I've spent the weekend reading Richard Duncan's "The Corruption of Capitalism," which is one of the best books I've read in a long time. The book is divided in three sections: The Present, The Past, and The Future, taking you full circle through the current economic environment and providing answers to how to solve the problems.
The best online reading this weekend came from Zero Hedge who provided an in depth look at treasury purchases this year. I will try to summarize the article in the future using easier terms, but until then it is a masterpiece worth reading.
Another article on a similar note came from the New York Post regarding our debt burden.
