I first became familiar with Thomas Sowell’s work when I read The Vision of the Anointed over a decade ago. Dr. Sowell has written a new book focusing on the recent (and still ongoing) housing debacle in the United States. In this video interview, Dr. Sowell speaks at length about the housing market but he goes far beyond the recent crisis and also speaks about the economic philosophy that sowed the seeds for the crisis. Dr. Sowell also comments on cap and trade, health care reform, and other current topics. I am looking forward to reading Dr. Sowell’s new book entitled The Housing Boom and Bust.
