I am trained as an economist and found that the book uses carefully reasoned arguments that go well beyond my specific training but are thoroughly compatible with it. The book seemed to shift gears in the closing section when getting to recommendations. Apparently, the authors set out to write a different book than they offer here and decided to return to their original agenda at the end. I'm comfortable with the recommendations offered. They come from the standard economist's playbook; I could have made many of them myself without reading the book. But for the most part, the discussion in the body of the book does not motivate the recommendations at the end. Read the book for an improved understanding of the problem, and the ideas being discussed around this problem, not for the recommendations. You are likely to have heard most of them already, even if you know little about this topic.
