The Great Recession is more than four years old, and counting. Yet, as Paul Krugman points out in this powerful volley, “Nations rich in resources, talent, and knowledge—all the ingredients for prosperity and a decent standard of living for all—remain in a state of intense pain.”

How bad have things gotten? How did we get stuck in what now can only be called a depression? And above all, how do we free ourselves? Krugman pursues these questions with his characteristic lucidity and insight. He has a powerful message for anyone who has suffered over these past four years, a quick, strong recovery is just one step away, if our leaders can find the “intellectual clarity and political will” to end this depression now.

Listener Opinions

    " Krugman makes a very convincing argument for his "neo-Keynesian" approach to the economy. It's nice to hear economics from an economist and not from ideologues. I was impressed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Curry | 1/25/2014

    " Another Excellent book by Krugman. If only the economic policy maker in D.C. read his books. He makes a cogent case for not focusing on the deficits right now when uneemployment is still very high in the US as we are in a liquidity trap. Just look at what is happening to the UK which has slipped back into the recession. Evidence based economic thinking which shall not convince the religious right! Anyone religious (there's no evidence for a GOD) shall dismiss arguments even that show ample proof their way of thinking is wrong. Its called cognitive dissonance. "

    " This excellent book is clear and concise (it helps if you love Keynes though...). It explains why the fiscal bale-out wasn't enough in the States and how the Euro and the relations in the Eurozone makes austerity inappropriate policy instruments to end the recession. Recommended to all, especially people in relevant policy departments !! "

    " Fast read. Keynsian view on current economic policy "
