#10 Too Smart for Our Own Good by Bruce I. Jacobs

Too Smart for Our Own Good by Bruce I. Jacobs
This well-written, thoroughly researched, insightful work offers a fascinating look at the market crashes. Bruce I. Jacobs attempts to identify the common causes of financial crises since the 1980s. He examines recent financial crises, including the 1987 stock market crash, the 1998 collapse of the hedge fund Long-Term Capital Management, the 2007–2008 credit crisis, and the European debt crisis, and reveals the common patterns that can explain these market disruptions.

The author admits that these crises were created by activities within financial markets and not external factors and argues that they were caused by certain investment strategies designed to reduce risks. Jacobs believes that by understanding the nature of investment risk and reward and managing risks in responsible ways, we will be able to avoid future crises or even anticipate them. The book offers excellent analysis and includes extensive tutorial sections and a glossary with definitions of all technical terms for readers with limited financial background. It’s a good book for anyone interested in financial markets.
