 Hong Kong’s Basement-Gate Points to Shaky Future 
,
Capitalism  |Syndicated  | The way the laissez-faire crowd gushes over Hong Kong has always been a bit surreal. It’s routinely ranked the freest economy anywhere thanks to its low taxes, unrestricted entry of foreign capital and rule of law.

 Greenspan, Macfarlane exposure gap says it all 
,
Capitalism  | A disciple of Ayn Rand's laissez- faire beliefs, Greenspan [...] took a hands-off approach to warnings about aggressive subprime lenders suckering customers into mortgages they couldn't afford.

• •Less Than Zero tops BOJ’s summer reading list 
,
Suggested reading for Bank of Japan officials.
Atlas Shrugged. Why an Ayn Rand classic? Because [BOJ Governor Toshihiko ] Fukui's path to being remembered as a great central banker like Alan Greenspan may be smoother if he reads the books written by the former Federal Reserve chairman's mentor.
