I reviewed John A. Allison’s The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure for Reasonpapers. I think that one can learn from reading it. I agree with much of his analysis and I share many of his opinions. However, in my judgment the book fails to live up to the standard of argument that I want to encourage. That is, I want people to constantly consider, “What would someone who disagrees with me think about this issue? What might be the unpleasant consequences of the solutions that I am proposing?” etc.
