Product Description

Review

With outstanding essays from the likes of Andy Haldane, John Kay and Andrew Lo, this book should be read by anyone interested in - or anxious about - what economists do and how economics is taught. ----Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist and Adapt

Superb! Diane Coyle has catalysed what is long overdue: candid self-questioning by economists of a discipline that did not anticipate the crisis and has barely changed since despite its self-evident shortcomings. Some spectacularly good reads. Economics cannot stay the same after this book. ----Will Hutton, Principal of Hertford College, Oxford, Observer columnist and Chair of The Big Innovation Centre

This book sets the agenda for the debate by economists and policymakers trying to avoid another financial crisis. The self-critical chapters by top-tier economists and practitioners provide fascinating insights into what went wrong and how the economics profession should reform itself. -- --Dr DeAnne Julius CBE, Chairman of Chatham House and former member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee

This book has helped me to develop my thinking into the importance of teaching economics. I started my degree in the year that the crisis began and my second and third years were filled with information and ideas on the subject, others should have the chance to investigate the crisis.
