End This Depression Now!
End This Depression Now!
by Paul Krugman
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Persuasive and Readable, 13 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very typical of Krugman's style from his New York Times op-ed column and blog; very accessible with entertaining prose and a forceful and persuasive line of argument for there being a demand side problem that warrants a more flexible fiscal and monetary response.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do not mistake this as a reference book, 6 Jan. 2009
I repeat, this is not to be used as a reference book; particularly if you are an academic studying philosophy. The title can be misleading as there is very little "history" here. Russell is undoubtedly a highly influential and important philosopher of the 20th century, but this is a very poor and distorted account of the history of western philosophy. In many cases the material is simply out of date and/or inaccurate, important philosophers are overlooked or given brief summaries, and favouritism is found to fit Russell's own views. For example, sections on Nietzsche and Rousseau are cringe worthy and almost criminal with the complete lack of fundamental understanding of their ideas and almost venomous prejudice against them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Likely the single best piece of television to this date, 30 Oct. 2008
Ed Burns and David Simon's The Wire is simply stunning. Its a crime/cop drama, but its contemporaries in the genre pale in comparison. This is no CSI or Law & Order; there are no whodunits, crusading forensics teams that go beyond their purview, or stark good vs. evil narratives here. This is about Baltimore; from the street corners to the docks, the homeless and junkies, the courthouse, the schools, etc... The series has never had a large following compared other HBO shows, but the HBO execs must have realised they had something very special that deserved to be aired. You won't find any instant gratification episode by episode, which is likely the main reason why a large audience never formed, but if you stay for the long haul you will be immensely satisfied.
