«Questo libro racconta la lotta per la verità, la giustizia e la mentalità antizombie. Non so se sarà mai possibile vincere, ma è sicuramente una causa per cui vale la pena combattere.»
Quella del Premio Nobel Paul Krugman è una delle voci più autorevoli al mondo in campo economico: i suoi libri e i suoi editoriali sono tradotti in decine di lingue, e ovunque non mancano di suscitare dibattito, polemiche, discussioni. Ma lo studioso è allo stesso tempo un popolare divulgatore capace di spiegare con semplicità le teorie economiche più complesse, e di svelare cosa si cela dietro le scelte a volte poco comprensibili di governi e multinazionali. In questo suo ultimo, atteso libro, Krugman affronta i temi decisivi al centro del dibattito pubblico dei nostri giorni: il ruolo futuro dell’Unione europea, i rischi della Brexit, le nuove strategie commerciali delle potenze mondiali; e senza mancare di offrire soluzioni originali e commenti taglienti, si scaglia contro i sovranismi e i populismi su entrambe le sponde dell’Atlantico, mette in guardia dalle riforme dell’amministrazione Trump nell’anno delle elezioni presidenziali, e con coraggio sfata tutte quelle convinzioni che le evidenze avrebbero dovuto definitivamente far mettere da parte decenni se non secoli fa, e che invece continuano a sopravvivere come zombie e a divorare il cervello di commentatori, intellettuali e di molti, troppi politici.

The problem with the political right of recent history is not that they don’t think like the left, or that they operate according to a different political philosophy. The problem is that the right has no qualms about presenting intentionally misleading and false information to achieve political gain Leggi tutto
DNF at 32%. I have a degree in accounting, am interested in everyday economic issues and yet books about economics are just so dry to me. This book appeared to have some strengths: it's organized by topic; the articles have updates and clarifications; and some topics impact everyday Americans (e.g. S Leggi tutto
I love the concept. Arguing with Zombies is an incredible metaphor for our increasingly siloed world. I remember viscerally feeling what Thomas Pinketty called a “dialogue of the deaf” to describe how people talk past one another. Krugman's idea is even more visual and potent. Certain policies have Leggi tutto

This is a very fine collection of essays, blog posts, and articles covering essentially two decades worth of issues, though there are also a couple of foundational works from the early 90's included as well. Nobel prize winning economist Paul Krugman displays a breadth and depth of work that include Leggi tutto
It is always a pleasure to spent some time reading the thoughts & views of Paul Krugman. I am one of those sad souls who read economics & politics for pleasure. With Paul you get both. Much of what he says, I agree with, & over the years he has convinced me to turn away from Monetarism & embrace Key Leggi tutto
A book of Krugman columns! He is always fun to read but also filled with insights. He is especially valuable to read as someone who has a good sense for policy issues while also remaining rigorous. I have always liked his economic geography work. I had read some of these before but they are short an Leggi tutto
