Product description

Review

"No one is more qualified than Steve Keen to answer the question "Can we avoid another financial crisis?" with more than a single word. Read this book!"
―Yanis Varoufakis, former Finance Minister of Greece

"In this compelling essay, Steve Keen shows that the "Great Moderation" was in fact a great delusion and documents, to brutal effect, the foolish complacency of mainstream macroeconomists."
―James K. Galbraith, University of Texas at Austin

"Steve Keen explains why the financial crisis it occurred, and why it can′t just get better on its own, along its present track. He also explains – in a hilarious and absolutely justified takedown – why mainstream economists have a "trained incapacity" in being unable to understand why the economy has broken down – and hence, why they don’t have a real solution. We are still living in the aftermath of the 2008 crisis. It’s all about debt. But economists fear they will lose their jobs if they say that debts must be written down. Keen asks what is more important: to save the economy, or to save the jobs for economists whose prestige rests on their not understanding why economies are in trouble today."
―Michael Hudson, author of Killing the Host and The Bubble and Beyond

"Non–academics interested in economic or financial markets should, if they read ony one book on the topic, absolutely read this one."
―International Investment

"Mr. Keen is surely right to argue that growth fuelled by the continuing expansion of private debt is highly risky for the overall economy, and that which cannot continue indefinitely will come to a sticky end sooner rather than later. We should heed his advice..."
―Globe and Mail
