Exert from Boomerang by Michael Lewis

This was a great short read this weekend and one of the best narratives on the European debt crisis I have read to date.

"Leverage buys you a glimpse of prosperity you haven't really earned."

"Democracy destroys itself because it abuses its right to freedom and equality. Because it teaches its citizens to consider audacity a right, lawlessness as freedom, abrasive speech as equality and anarchy as progress."
