Informative and timely, but where's the references?,
This review is from: The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008 (Hardcover)
A history of economic disasters from the past 30 years reveals more about the U.S.'s current troubles, and scares the crap out of me in the process. Pretty easy read, and afterwords, I felt much more informed about the 2008 crash, and possible routes out of our current mess. Would've rated it higher but Krugman didn't see the need to include references or a bibliography. We're just supposed to believe him?

Might not have been Krugman's idea to leave out the documentation. A lot of publishers refuse to include documentation and notes. This happens with bibliographies because they take up space, and the notes get left out, in part, because some people actually complain about them. It seems crazy to me, and I agree with the reviewer that it lessens the credibility of a book, no matter what else the reader may think about the book or the author.
