Editorial Reviews

Review

An invaluable resource in a time of great uncertainty. Intelligent yet accessible to non-experts, [it] fills a valuable niche in a debate often dominated by ideological talking heads who thrive on popular anger and drain the political system of sensible dialogue. --Jon Rosen"

[An] important book, which deserves to be widely read and debated. "

An excellent read. [Chinn and Frieden] anticipated a movement like Occupy Wall Street. "

Through pointed historical and comparative illustration, the authors show how financiers, politicians, and ideologues ushered in the crisis, and highlight the challenges we must overcome to avoid another lost decade. --Nouriel Roubini, Stern School of Business, NYU"

An integrated and compelling account of where our debts came from and why they won t go away any time soon. Chinn and Frieden combine the smartest kind of economics with the toughest kind of political science. Read this book for a somewhat disheartening but completely enlightening education and then send 10 copies to the White House and Capitol Hill. --Simon Johnson, MIT, co-author of 13 Bankers"

This wonderful book by two leading political economists identifies the roots of the recent financial crisis and the deep recession that followed, but more important, tells us what awaits us if we do not fix the underlying problems. It is political economy as it was meant to be - accessible and concise, even while deeply troubling. --Raghuram G. Rajan, Booth School of Business, University of Chicago"

You will not read a better political-economic synthesis of America s financial crisis than this book. --Dani Rodrik, author of The Globalization Paradox"

An intelligent, vivid, and accessible account of the first great crisis of the 21st century. Drawing on comparisons that will bother recalcitrant believers in American economic exceptionalism, the authors depict a gloomy panorama for the years to come unless policy makers get serious about fiscal reform. This is a must-read for the expert and the layman alike. --Ernesto Zedillo, Director of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization Former President of Mexico"
