When I was looking for a book about the recent financial crisis I was looking for a book which would explain in detail the attributed causes of it: subprime mortgages, housing bubble, etc. This book is much more than that: it explains the flaws in capitalism and how the failures in the system led to this economy depression (and others in the past). It shows how the explosion of debt in the USA and the financialization of the economy are only consequences of a capitalism's flaw: its tendency is towards stagnation, and not growth as popularly believed.
A great book: if the widely-known economists read and understood this book (and finally opened their eyes), maybe then we could shift the widely accepted paradigm of neoclassic macroeconomics (which doesn't have anything to do with reality and is more apparent today than ever) to a real understanding of the flaws in capitalism and finally do something about it. Or else governments can keep bailing out, and expand the already monstruous USA's debt, while the working class keeps getting lower real wages and more debts, unemployment and underemployment goes up and the inequality between rich and poor gets wider and wider.
