For the second time this decade, the US economy is sinking into a recession due to the collapse of a financial bubble. The most recent calamity is likely to produce a downturn deeper and longer than the stock market crash of 2001. Dean Baker argues not only that competent economists should have recognized the developing housing bubble, but also that policy makers and the media cheerfully neglected those economists who did predict danger. Baker doesnt engage in 20-20 hindsight, but documents the fundamental policy changes since 1980 that destabilized the economy and eroded the broad prosperity of the post-war period. His expert analysis explains the outcomes clearly so we can prevent similar financial disasters in the future.The Bubble Economy: How We Got Here The Clinton Era and the Origins of the Stock Bubble The Collapse of the Stock Bubble and the 2001 Recession The Bubble Comes Home: The Beginnings of the Housing Bubble The Further Extension of the Housing Bubble and Its Final Collapse Beyond the Bubble Economy

''[A] lively text. And as one of the main scriptwriters of the two internal BBC training sessions which were produced following the Hutton inquiry, I can heartily recommend this book'' - Peter Stewart, BBC Training dept, in ''Useful Stuff'' ''The Gilligan story emerges as the fulcrum of Harcup''s entertaining study, which is packed with illustrations of journalistic heroism and skulduggery...This is an engaging and useful reference book...and should become essential reading for serious students of journalism and for those who practise it'' - Sally Feldman, Times Higher Education Supplement ''Lively, original and brave! Harcup draws on interviews with practising journalists as well as a vast array of other sources! It should certainly help convince all students that ethics need not be boring but lie at the heart of the journalist''s job'' - Prof Richard Keeble, Fifth Estate Online ''The Ethical Journalist, as the title implies, puts ethics and reflection back onto the journalist and makes it central to what he or she does while emphasising the importance and role of journalism in democracy'' - Irish Communication Review ''A must-read for all journalists - be they reporters, editors or bloggers.It is both a straightforward explanation of ethical dilemmas using real-life examples and a subtle commentary on the state of British journalism'' - Roy Greenslade, British Journalism Review Everything that journalists do has ethical implications, and in this book Tony Harcup explores the range of issues likely to confront those studying journalism or training to become journalists. The starting point for this engaging and innovative book is that ethical journalism is good journalism. Building on the reflective and questioning approach of the author''s acclaimed Journalism: Principles and Practice, this book discusses journalists'' personal anecdotes alongside relevant critical studies by academics. Original interviews include Andrew Gilligan on his meeting with weapons expert Dr David Kelly and Ryan Parry on being an undercover reporter in Buckingham Palace. Informed by new research and the author''s own experience within mainstream and alternative journalism, The Ethical Journalist addresses topics such as trust, the public interest, deception, news values, source relationships, crime reporting, regulation and the Hutton inquiry.This exciting new title discusses ethics as fundamental rather than as a set of problems or an added extra, and it should become essential reading for everyone interested in journalism. Praise for Harcup''s Journalism - Principles and Practice ''Rich in sourced quotations, referenced anecdotes and provocative opinions from well-known authorities! Refreshingly, many of the debates are left open for development by the readers'' - Journalism Studies ''He offers dozens of stories, interviews with reporters, and historical references to bolster his idea that from reflective practitioners comes ethical journalism, and ethical journalism is good journalism... As a guide to applied ethics in international journalism, this collection of recent and historical cases provides grist for solid debate... Altogether The Ethical Journalist presents a glimpse at how British and other journalists grapple with the ethical demands of their employers, their audiences, and even their governments'' - Jan Leach Journal of Mass Media Ethics.Introduction to ethical journalism Why journalism matters Knowledge is power In the public interest Danger: news values at work Can I quote you on that? Journalists and their sources Round up the usual suspects: how crime is reported in the media The regulation of journalism Standing up for standards Ethical journalism is good journalism
