John Cassidy describes the rising influence of what he calls utopian economics--thinking that is blind to how real people act and that denies the many ways an unregulated free market can produce disastrous unintended consequences. He then looks to the leading edge of economic theory, including behavioral economics, to offer a new understanding of the economy--one that casts aside the old assumption that people and firms make decisions purely on the basis of rational self-interest.… (mer)

For authors who write for the general public: brevity and presenting complex ideas in simple ways are a virtue. This author hadn't those virtues. Had to give up half way in. ( )

Excellent. Thorough overview of the field of economics, from Adam Smith through JS Mill, Keynes and Hayek, Friedman, to the current financial collapse. Argues for a pragmatic approach, with the full acknowledgment that market failure exists, and that there is no invisible hand when it comes to the financial markets. The real joy for me comes in learning all sorts of things about economists I'd not really heard anything about, such as Arrow, Akerlof, and Minsky. It predates the Occupy movement, written in 2009, and it's late enough that you can see that Wall Street didn't learn a damn thing from the recent financial crisis.

Superb critical account of all that is wrong with economics and the economic system. Very clear and wide ranging. ( )

sort of a history of economics (only as far as Adam Smith) - will need to interloan in the future ( )

The best introductory explanation of two major theories of economy - Keynes vs Freedman - and how it all played out in a recent financial crisis. The author is very convincing even though he is definitely on the liberal side (for me). There is no question that government should be involved in regulation of the economy in general, and financial regulations in particular - but there is a fine line. The author acknowledges this line but completely omits discussion regarding it, dangers of too extensive government intervention and how to avoid it. As of financial crisis, the author acknowledges the role played in this crisis by the government through Fannie/Freddie mortgage purchasing/guarantees. However, he seems to dismiss the idea that such involvement was a critical, even crucial factor. I wonder how it would all develop without push from the US government to encourage as many mortgages as possible. Given such government role in the crisis, I believe it's impossible to argue that private sector alone caused it. Anyway, the book is extremely well written and gives a lot to think about. ( )
