End This Depression Now! is a call-to-arms from Nobel Prize–winning economist and best-selling author Paul Krugman. The Great Recession is more than four years old—and counting. How bad have things gotten? How did we get stuck in what now can only be called a depression? And above all, how do we free ourselves? Krugman pursues these questions with his characteristic lucidity and insight. He has a powerful message for anyone who has suffered over these past four years—a quick, strong recovery is just one step away, if our leaders can find the "intellectual clarity and political will" to end this depression now.
“Paul Krugman is stepping up to play the kind of role that John Maynard Keynes performed in the 1930s.”
“[Krugman] makes an urgent, even passionate case that our economic problems are, at root, fairly simple, and we have the knowledge and the tools to solve them.”
