Description

In this wonderfully cohesive set of sharp, witty essays, Krugman tackles bad economic ideas from across the political spectrum, giving us clear-eyed insights into unemployment, globalisation, economic growth and financial speculation among other topics. The writing here brilliantly combines the acerbic style and clever analysis that has made Krugman famous. Some of the articles have been written in response to particular economic events, but there is no political orthodoxy in them, only rational common sense.
‘Everything Mr Krugman has to say is smart, important and even fun to read… he is one of a handful of very bright, relatively young economists who do everything well.’
Peter Passell, New York Times Book Review
