Krugman calls himself a liberal - - how very strange, he should call himself a cheerleader for the bankers and the Federal Reserve, now that would be more accurate. This book description calls him a Nobel Laureate - - very, very strange, since the Nobel family never established a Nobel Prize in Economics. In fact, no member of the Nobel family even recognizes such a fiction. Krugman was awarded, as most specious shills are, the Swedish Central Bank [Rijksbank] Prize in Economical Sciences in Memory of Nobel, a prize of little consequence, given its other recipients. Krugman's only political appointment was to a Republican administration, which again sounds logical. Krugman apologizes for the bankster/gangsters, misleads on the actual causes of the economic meltdown, and continues to bewilder and confse those rightwingers who call themselves democrats. Read Michael Perelman and Michael Hudson to follow REAL economists.

This book explains a lot about economics in fairly understandable terms.

In one example, he explains how a babysitting co-op went into recession, and how it came out of it.

He explains each of the crisis of Thailand, Brasil, Mexico, and Argentina. Many of these had IMF input that may have made things much worse than other courses of action.

This book is both enlightening and interesting.
