This review is from: The Road to Recovery: How and Why Economic Policy Must Change (Hardcover)
The author of this book has created a largely coherent evidence based view of why Western economies and to a lesser degree the global economy has arrived at the position it has. He position as a practicing economist with a highly successful business background has gives him the ability to think and express those thoughts without fear of challenging the ruling orthodoxy. This made it for me an essential read, especially as I can observe and agree first hand many of the results of the bad management motives and false economic ideas that the author contends are at the root of Western economic weakness and societal fractiousness and gross inequality. One can only hope policy makers and the wider press take up some of his core ideas. They could be game changers should certainly be tried given the very obvious failure of the current approach to most of the issues tackled.
