Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by B. Factor | 1/18/2014

    " Krugman traces the roots of the current world-wide financial crisis and states that we must strictly regulate any bank-like financial activity to reduce the severity and frequency of such financial crises. He further states that the financial crisis has resulted in an economy with far more capacity to produce than demand to consume (ie., a depression type economy), a very serious problem that is best solved by massive government spending on infrastructure etc. The rest of the book is a head-spinning chronology of recent financial crises: much description, little explanation. I was hoping for some deeper economic insight but did not find it here; it's much more political than I would have preferred. "

    " This is a short (191 pages) understandable book that covers more than just the US crisis of 2008. This book includes descriptions of financial problems in other countries over the last quarter century. Describing how problems in Brazil, Indonesia and Japan were addressed with varying degrees of success puts the US crisis of 2008 in perspective. Krugman makes clear we are not out of the woods yet and offers suggestions on what is needed for recovery. "

    " Very easy to easy to understand. There aren't any complicated terms in this book. Paul Krugman explains what happened in lame terms. I recommend it to everyone. "

    " Sobering reminder of the economic challenges we face by the 2008 winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics. A surprisingly easy read, this book makes a complex subject understandable. "
