3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but lacks rigour., 24 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Peddling Prosperity: Economic Sense and Nonsense in an Age of Diminished Expectations: Economic Sense and Nonsense in the Age of Diminished Expectations (Norton Paperback) (Paperback)
I was assigned this book as prep reading for university. Whilst i found it highly informative as to the history of macroeconomic theory and policy in a general sense, the analysis of the various models was so lacking in rigour (diagramatic or mathematic) that Krugman failed to convince me of the failings of any of the systems proposed by the academics. That said, the book is well written (for an economics book extremely well written) and presents the generalities clearly and with a sense of humour. In short if you are generally interested in economics then its worth reading, if your of a more academic persausion you may well be disappointed.
