Michael Roberts, radikalni marksist, zavrne dve novi knjigi, ki bi radi rešili kapitalizem (ena s premoženjskim skladom, druga z norveškim modelom kapitalizma), na ciničen način:
“saving capitalism from itself without hurting it too much”
It’s summer in the northern hemisphere and holiday time in the year of the COVID. So it’s an opportunity to review a few economics books published this year (but written before the pandemic and the Great Lockdown).
I am not a fan of clever, trick titles; they usually overhype the content of a book itself. We have had Freakonomics and Factfulness before, which never lived to up to their titles. Now we have Angryonomics by Eric Lonergan and Mark Blyth.
Eric Lonergan is a macro hedge-fund manager and Mark Blyth is an economics professor at Brown University. Blyth is the author of Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea, a firmly Keynesian rebuttal of austerity policies after the Great Recession and his podcasts and his talks on YouTube are viewed by millions. I have debated with Blyth on the future of the European Union (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kqobP23FV0).
