Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this wonderfully cohesive set of sharp and witty essays, Paul Krugman tackles bad economic ideas from across the political spectrum. In plain English, he enlightens us on the Asian crisis, corporate downsizing, and the globalization of the American economy, among other topics. The writing here brilliantly combines the acerbic style and clever analysis that has made Krugman famous. Imagine declaring New York its own country and you get a better picture of our trade balance with China and Hong Kong. Try reducing the economy to the production of hot dogs and buns and you'll understand why common beliefs about the impact of production efficiency on labor demand are wrong. This is a collection that will amuse, provoke, and enlighten, in classic Paul Krugman style. Paul Krugman] writes better than any economist since John Maynard Keynes. - Rob Norton, Fortune Paul Krugman is] probably the most creative economist of his generation. - The Economist Winner of the John Bates Clark Medal

Synopsis:

This text weaves together articles and addresses by Paul Krugman into a short narrative on the major economic issues of the latter 1990s: unemployment, globalization, economic growth, financial speculation, and more.
