End This Depression Now!

A call-to-arms from Nobel Prize-winning economist and bestselling author Paul Krugman

The Great Recession is more than four years old--and counting. Yet, as Paul Krugman points out in this powerful volley, "nations rich in resources, talent, and knowledge--all the ingredients for prosperity and a decent standard of living for all--remain in a state of intense pain."

How bad have things gotten? How did we get stuck in what now can only be called a depression? And above all, how do we free ourselves? Krugman pursues these questions with his characteristic lucidity and insight. He has a powerful message for anyone who has suffered over these past four years--a quick, strong recovery is just one step away, if our leaders can find the "intellectual clarity and political will" to end this depression now.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine In this follow-up to THE RETURN OF DEPRESSION ECONOMICS, Nobel Prize-winning economist and Princeton professor Krugman delivers his introduction before handing over the reins to Rob Shapiro. As Krugman describes the recession of 2008 and charts a path to end the recession, Shapiro uses an even pace and steadily builds the narration to Krugman's conclusions about supply, demand, and increased spending. For the aspects of the discussion that require a more visual approach, there are references to the accompanying charts and graphs. Even though the subject matter can be dense, Shapiro presents Krugman's argument in a straightforward and understandable way, reading with inflection and emphasis, and slowing down to allow listeners to digest the more technical aspects of the discussion.
