Morris reinhart and Rogoff Barry Ritholtz This is fun: Paul Kedrosky has assembled a list of books about the financial crisis which contain the most instances of the word "fuck." Surprisingly less than we expected, given the topic. Full list, after the jump: Andrew Ross Sorkin's Too Big to Fail: 20 "fucks" (.03 fucks/page) Michael Lewis' The Big Short:15 "fucks" (.06 fucks/page) Charles Gasparino's The Sellout: 10 "fucks" (.02 fucks/page) Gregory Zuckerman's The Greatest Trade Ever: 2 "fucks" (.01 fucks/page) Charles R. Morris' The Two Trillion Dollar Meltdown; Reinhart and Rogoff's This Time is Different; Barry Ritholtz's Bailout Nation: Zero "fucks!" For a much more substantive overview of these books and many more, we highly recommend former Gawker editor Moe Tkacik's essay in the inaugural issue of The Baffler re-boot. (Hint: Blame the hedge funders—"vacuous, cowardly and parasitic twerps.") Although, it's funny to see how many times the word "fuck" is in things, too!
