This wonderfully received book finds him in top form observing the years he's dubbed the age of diminished expectations The past twenty years have been an era of economic disappointment in the United States They have also been a time of. And giving you the reasons why they re wrong Krugman both avoids simply throwing out ad hominems though there are some barbs in here and gives you a way TO THINK ABOUT FUTURE CLAIMS ONE think about future claims One the reasons why he has earned such a reputation as a strong iberal is due to his staunch opposition to the Bush tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 reading the math behind why the Reagan tax cuts failed and closer to home why the recent ate reading the math behind why the Reagan tax cuts failed and closer to home why the recent ate extension of the Bush cuts will fail utterly to bring prosperity you become not particularly optimistic et s say about people s ability to earn from their mistakesThe subtitle coins an excellent phrase which I am surprised has not gained wider currency the Age of Diminished Expectations While this book was written before the Clinton Era Boom Had Really Taken Off era boom had really taken off remember growing up in the 90s and thinking of it as a time of seemingly permanent growth Looking from today at the numbers though the steady decrease in productivity growth the increasing ineuality the growing strength of the truly awful movement conservative wing of the Republican Party I m amazed at how satisfied people are with such mediocre growth when compared to the global trente glorieuses after the war It would be easy to despair at the gradual lowering of the bar but even during his discussion of massive failuresike the monetarist experiments in Thatcher era Britain the emphasis is on the math and ogic behind why those policies failed which prevents the book from sounding too depressing even if the conclusions behind it are plenty depressingThe ending section about the rise of the strategic traders in the Clinton administration is a model of analytical clarity the presentation of subtle economic ogic about how the budget of a national economy is not ike that of a company s balance sheet and all the mischief that that fallacy immediately brings to mind Obama making exactly these mistakes with his Council on Competitiveness chaired by the CEO of a company that has outsourced thousands of jobs and shuffled around billions in taxable income So even though the endless recurrence of terrible economic ideas will not end anytime soon the book offers invaluable perspective on their sources and how to evaluate them The focus is always on the data and while Krugman may not always be right his dismissal of critics of Japan s trade surplus in the 90s sits oddly with his criticism of China s seemingly very similar trade surplus in the 00s even given the vastly different economic circumstances he gives you all the tools and ammunition you need to form a coherent counter argument. Offer easy answers to hard problems Supply siders rose to power with Ronald Reagan and not only cured nothing but eft behind a 3 trillion debt Krugman finds an unhappy parallel in those who shape policy within the Clinton administratio. Peddling Prosperity Economic Sense and Nonsense in an Age of Diminished ExpectationsY critical thinking That s exactly what this book is about criticizing both right wing proponents of supply side and Friedmanist monetary theories as well as Amulet Of Power The Lost Amulet Chronicles 2 left wing proponents of strategic trade theory in a way that illustrates not only why you can t simply sayet s split the difference between these theories and call it a compromise but also why it s vital to take the time to think clearly about what people are telling you and whether their numbers add up and why you can t always trust people on your sidePeddling Prosperity Is Very Clearly A very clearly a aimed at a popular audience both because most but not all numerical exercises are relegated to the appendix and because it s structured as a narrative of the near mortal wounds that Keynesian economics Suffered In The 70s After Its Triumphs in the 70s after its triumphs the postwar era the rise of potential conservative alternatives and those alternatives eventual failures and the seeming Keynesian resurgence in the early 90s It was published in 1994 so it s a bit out of date but it s actually very interesting to see echoes of the then cutting edge worries about Japan and transpose them 15 years to the present day since most of the debates about government activism the deficit and international competitiveness haven t aged a day Press releases and popular discussions of issues certainly haven t gotten any sophisticated so it s somehow still a breath of fresh air to read explanations of trade or productivity that are aimed at a wide audience without being dumbed down to sound bitesVirtually every section if you read closely follows an A B C sort of script someone is claiming A must be true but here is data B which actually implies C so therefore they re wrong This pattern shows up very freuently in his writing and this book is no exception Harsh but rigorous discussion of the history and reasoning behind various alternatives to Keynesian economics over the are backed up by charts graphs and most importantly the models behind these ideas Part of the reason why stupid notions ike endless tax cuts for rich people persist in the world aside from the obvious self interested aspect of wealthy donors and obbyists is because those notions are sold within a seemingly plausible framework with a strong narrative by cutting taxes for rich people they will be able to create jobs for people and prosperity than if that wealth is given to other people the taxes you cut the jobs you create and conversely the taxes you raise on these wealth creators the jobs you destroy By walking the reader through these implicit models showing you the data. Intense economic debate as rival ideologies contend for policy influence But strange things have happened to economic ideas on their way to power they've been hijacked by policy entrepreneurs economic snake oil salesmen right or eft who. ,
