"An accessible, compelling introduction to today's major policy issues from columnist, best-selling author, and Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman. There is no better guide than Paul Krugman to basic economics, the ideas that animate much of our public policy. Likewise, there is no better foe of zombie economics, the misunderstandings that just won't die. This delightful new book finds Krugman at his best, turning readers into intelligent consumers of the daily news with quick, vivid sketches of the key concepts behind taxes, health care, international trade, and more. Arguing with Zombies will put Krugman at the front of the debate in the 2020 election year. Building on and expanding his New York Times columns and other writings, it contains short, accessible chapters on topics including the fight for national health care in the United States, the housing bubble and financial meltdown of 2007- 2008, the European Union and Brexit, the attack on Social Security, and the fraudulent argument- the ultimate zombie- that tax cuts for the rich will benefit all"--… (mer)

Mr. Krugman takes a very confusing subject, and breaks it down into simple pieces, then explains it in simple terms that are easy to understand. I didn't always agree with his opinions, but he lays out a great argument for his point of view ( )

Economics written in a manner that a moderately educated person can understand. The book is a collection of op-eds that Krugman has written over the last twenty years. Krugman dissects the fallacies of the conservative take on macroeconomics and shows the strengths of what he calls social democracy and why it benefits regular people in the United States and the world at large. He guts the Euro and the right's constant attempts to privatize everything - the truth is that the government is is more efficient and less costly. A great book. ( )

Interesting but biased. Learned a few things I didn't know. ( )

A very thoughtful book that links 'economic' concepts and principles to today's social issues. Not an easy book for the layman; but a rewarding one. I learned a lot. ( )
