PRAISE FOR ECONOSPINNING 'We know that economists are dismal scientists, but scientists nevertheless. This book casts doubt about the science of economic journalism by showing that it's often politically biased, superficial, and inconsistent with facts. An important book.' --Baruch Lev, Philip Bardes Professor of Accounting and Finance, New York University Stern School of Business 'Econospinning shines the spotlight on how economic data are chronically misreported by journalists and manipulated by political pundits. Epstein raises the bar in how to think about and interpret economic statistics.' --Bill Dudley, Advisory Director, The Goldman Sachs Group 'Bull markets in bad economic ideas are a lot like bubbles in financial assets--it takes just the right mixture of the cynical and the credulous to produce really extreme outcomes. And, as with asset bubbles, the sooner bad ideas are deflated, the less damage they do. Gene Epstein's clear-eyed analysis in Econospinning is a timely corrective for many of the flawed notions that have made their way into circulation in recent years.' --Lou Crandall, Chief Economist, Wrightson ICAP 'A shocking and provocative book. Econospinning shows how the brightest and most credentialed economists--from Krugman in the Times to bestselling author Steven Levitt--abuse data, and in rather blatant ways at that.' --Amar Bhidé, Lawrence D. Glaubinger Professor of Business Columbia University Graduate School of Business 'Gene Epstein preaches that a statistic is not how it's labeled; it's how it's collected. Beware the intersection of an emotionally evocative label and a spuriously precise number.' --Neal Soss, Managing Director, Credit Suisse 'Gene Epstein's book will raise journalistic standards and cause readers everywhere to mind the news with more care. Paul Krugman has now met his match.' --Kent Smetters, Associate Professor of Insurance and Risk Management, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

NOW IN PAPERBACK The 'gripping' (New York Times) and 'Hitchcockian'(Publishers Weekly) story of how a nurse, a car dealership worker, and a forensic expert took on the nation's largest banks A Kirkus Reviews and The Week best book of the year, David Dayen's Chain of Title is a riveting work that recalls A Civil Action, Erin Brockovich, and Flash Boys, recounting how three ordinary Floridians-a car dealership worker, a cancer nurse, and an insurance fraud specialist-helped uncover the largest consumer crime in American history, challenged the most powerful institutions in America, and-for a brief moment-brought the corrupt financial industry to its knees. Lisa Epstein, Michael Redman, and Lynn Szymoniak did not work in government or law enforcement. They had no history of anticorporate activism. Instead they were all foreclosure victims, and while struggling with their shame and isolation they committed a revolutionary act: closely reading their mortgage documents, discovering the deceit behind them, and building a movement to expose it. Harnessing the power of the Internet, they revealed how the financial crisis and subsequent recession were fundamentally based upon a series of frauds that kicked millions out of their homes because of false evidence by mortgage companies that had no legal right to foreclose. As Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi noted: 'Chain of Title is a sweeping work of investigative journalism that traces the arc of a criminally underreported story in America, the collapse of the rule of law in the home mortgage industry.'
