The U.S. political brawl over the causes of the crisis. Some Critical Comments
The Final Report of the National Commission on the Causes of the Financial and Economic Crisis in the United States was released on January 27 2011. The strong political differences within the commission prevented the draft of a shared report. In addition to the majority report, two dissenting ones have been produced. I shall criticize some of their conclusions and point out some unreported facts.
