The New Economics - a bigger picture

The New Economics - a bigger picture

Anyone who offers a diagnosis of the current economic malaise and prescribes a cure, but has not read this book, doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Anyone who has no idea what the hell’s going on, or where to turn next, will surely retrieve a positive sense of direction from reading it. That probably covers most of us, so everyone really should read this book – by far the best overview there is of the new economics, its long gestation and increasingly credible, practicable propositions. Some doubts are raised by the authors themselves: ‘Failing to stitch the new economics together into a seamless challenge means that it is liable to be used partly in order to maintain the status quo.’ In other words, ‘only’ the politics of making it happen remain to be resolved.
