Arguing with Zombies: Economics, Politics, and the Fight for a Better Future
Arguing with Zombies: Economics, Politics, and the Fight for a Better Future, Krugman organizes a collection of past columns by topic, and opens each theme with his current perspective, often involving how he was right then and he is right now. Whether you agree or disagree with Krugman, he writes with great skill and, as the title indicates, he continues to do battle with dead ideas: the zombie notions that have been proven wrong again and again but never seem to die. So, read about tax cuts, deficits, trade wars, social security, inequality, austerity, the climate and more. Smile when you agree, fume when you disagree, but admire his clarity.
