KEYNESIAN ECOMONICS MADE SIMPLE,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: End This Depression Now! (Kindle Edition)
One of the hardest things to explain in ley-terms is economics. The theories can get complicated and sometimes the maths just gets in the way.
This book pitches itself at just the right level. Explains Keynesian economics in a simple yet truthful way, does not patronise and does not baffle with science. Unlike most books on economics where the authors seem to be saying "Look at how clever I am", this book just gets down and tells a story...
... a story about how this damned recession should be over now. How we have the resources to end it and find our way back into growth but how the recovery is being stifled by those charged with its execution. How austerity measures, far from ending the depression, are making matters worse.
This morning (1 Jan 2013), it was announced that the UK is probably about to enter a TRIPLE DIP as the austerity measures are making matters worse. I urge everyone to read this book - although focusing on the USA, it still makes the case for a Keynesian solution clearly.
