Not only is free market-capitalism good for the economy, says industry expert John A. Allison, it is our only hope for recovery. As America's longest-serving chief executive officer of a top-25 financial institution, Allison has had a unique inside view of the events leading up to the financial crisis. He has seen the direct effect of government incentives on the real estate market. He has seen how government regulations only make matters worse.

And now, in his controversial wake-up call of a book, The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why Pure Capitalism is the World Economy's Only Hope, Allison gives us a solution. It reveals why regulation is bad for the market, and for the world; what we can do to promote a healthy free market; how we can help end unemployment in the U.S.; the truth about TARP and the bailouts; and how Washington can help Wall Street build a better future for everyone.

Allison is president and chief executive officer of the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C., and retired chairman and chief executive officer of BB&T. The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports Cato Institute projects.

With shrewd insight, alarming insider details, and practical advice for today's leaders, Allison's electrifying analysis is nothing less than a call to arms for a nation on the brink. Readers learn how government incentives helped blow up the real-estate bubble to unsustainable proportions, how financial tools such as derivatives have been wrongly blamed for the crash, and how Congress fails to understand it should not try to control the market.

From McGraw-Hill, The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure helps us understand why it's so important to put "free" back in free market.
