Summary
The effects of 2008 are still with us today. As restricted growth and austerity have endured, so has the profound crisis of ideas the financial crisis precipitated. In Money and Government, Robert Skidelsky accounts for the causes of the crash. He shows that the underlying causes have not been dealt with, and examines what the failures - by politicians and economists - mean for economics
Summary
A critical examination of economics's past and future, and how it needs to change, by one of the most eminent political economists of our time
