Literary Review, July 2010
“Hugely ambitious…. The overall impression is startlingly original. Kaletsky offers a genuinely new take on the credit crunch.”
The Economist, July 8, 2010
“Pedants will find plenty to quibble about in Mr Kaletsky’s analysis of the past, let alone his predictions.. But his book is full of clever insights. For sheer intellectual chutzpah and creativity, it is well worth reading.”
Financial Times, July 18, 2010
“Provocative…. There are now many – too many – books on the credit crunch. Kaletsky’s considerable achievement is to put these events in a perspective that looks back to history and forward to an extended future, and to do so in a framework which goes far beyond a chronology of events. His book is a major contribution to the debate on the nature of the market economy that needs to follow the practical failures of market fundamentalism.”
