Going beyond critique, Keen then makes proposals regarding how best to refashion economics so that it may be somewhat more connected to reality and thus far more useful and conversely less disastrously inept as a guide to fiscal policy.
Casual readers may find that some of Keen's mathematics require a quick refresh of one's grade-school math, but there's nothing of difficulty presented and for those who are math phobic the text generally summarizes the arguments so you can blip over most of the equations.
It's unlikely that many will read Keen's book, as the standard journals (all edited by neoclassical adherents unwilling to accept that reality contradicts their models in every significant detail) refuse to publish his papers. But if you are curious about why bankers make so much money and why the financial crisis has led to the impoverishment of hundreds of millions of people and no real growth in employment despite the supposed recovery, this book will help you to understand just how badly most economists understand the real economy and therefore why the actions of most governments have been so disastrous for ordinary people.
