In this thoughtful work, economist David Blanchflower recounts his involvement in government decisions in the period leading up to and during the Great Recession. He laments the blindness of his profession in letting the crisis happen and in exacerbating its effects. Blanchflower explores current links between economic policy and the rise of global populism and nationalism, and he discusses how leaders could avert another recession, which he sees as imminent. His fact-filled book will appeal to economists, policy analysts and recession worriers everywhere.
