"...a thoroughly persuasive polemic against premature fiscal austerity in the wake of a deep recession." Robert Harding, Financial Times "...Krugman divides opinion like no other. To his followers, he's a saint; to his detractors, he's a false prophet with satanic intent." Jeremy Warner, The Daily Telegraph "Krugman...most hated and most admired columnist in the US..." Martin Wolf, Financial Times "It's the sort of book you wish were compulsory reading, and want to quote to anyone who'll listen, because End This Depression Now! provides a comprehensive narrative of how we have ended up doing the opposite of what logic and history tell us we must do to get out of this crisis." Decca Aitkenhead, The Guardian "Loathe him or love him - and Krugman's take-no-prisoners writing style has as many enemies as admirers - it is impossible to ignore him." Ben Chu, The Independent "I hope without much confidence that the book's wide readership includes the UK prime minister and chancellor." Samuel Brittan, Financial Times "Anyone persuaded by Osborne's eulogy of reduced deficits at the Mansion House last week should read Krugman's End This Depression Now! His plea for immediate, universal demand expansion is unanswerable." Simon Jenkins, The Guardian "[Paul Krugman] is one of a golden generation of economic thinkers...that have emerged to dominate the debate about the causes and consequences of slump." The Jewish Chronicle "Krugman is "feisty" and "sharp-elbowed": you might disagree with his thesis, but you'll keep on reading." The Week "Krugman is always an engaging writer and here he clearly sets out what must be done to get our economies back on track. Right on the money." The Crack Magazine "Furious but funny, Krugman's seductive style renders recondite theory readable for even the most economically illiterate." Word "He [Krugman] has written a useful and timely book." Morning Star "...an excellent introduction to the state of the world economy..." Gateway "...Krugman has written a tract for the times...It is succinct, polemical, satirical in places, advocating unashamedly Keynesian policies which, in his view, could rapidly end the recession and produce sustained growth." Socialist Alternative "Paul Krugman breaks the mould with this practical answer to our increasingly troubled times from an economist who proves consistently right." Jon Snow "...End This Depression Now! is a thoroughly captivating read which provides much food for thought..." The Business Economic "In this lively polemic, he [Krugman] makes a powerful case against austerity." Evening Standard "... this brilliant book..." Christmas Books 2012, Financial Times "Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman's End This Depression Now! explains in clear, accessible language why the US and UK need a fiscal stimulus and how an austerity policy is repeating the mistakes of the 1930s." --rian AshcroftThe Best Reads of 2012, Scotland on Sunday
