Arguing with Zombies: Economics, Politics, and the Fight for a Better Future
Paul Krugman is one of the most famous economists in the United States, and his writing has reached millions of readers as he often writes for the average reader in his columns for The New York Times, The New Yorker, and other publications. This book brings together a collection of his writings that date all the way back to 2004. The writings are arranged by theme and then proceed chronologically as Krugman looks at different themes that have had an impact on society.
This feels like traveling back through time in a way, though there is a little bit of new writing at the beginning of each section. This honestly feels more like a remembrance of the past including how things were when George W. Bush won a second term, the fight over the privatization of Social Security, the crash of the housing bubble, Obama’s presidential terms, and the early days of Trump. This book will be interesting for those people who were too young to really know what was happening back then and to help those that did know what was happening to recognize how things can oftentimes travel in full circle.
