By Atif Mian, Amir Sufi

The nice American Recession ended in the lack of 8 million jobs among 2007 and 2009. greater than 4 million houses have been misplaced to foreclosure.

Armed with transparent and strong proof, Atif Mian and Amir Sufi show in House of Debt how the nice Recession and nice melancholy, in addition to the present monetary malaise in Europe, have been because of a wide run-up in loved ones debt by means of a considerably huge drop in loved ones spending.

How will we finish this kind of cycle?
