End This Depression Now!
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A New York Times best-selling call to arms from Nobel Prize–winning economist Paul Krugman.
The Great Recession is more than four years old—and counting. Yet, as Paul Krugman points out in this powerful volley, "Nations rich in resources, talent, and knowledge—all the ingredients for prosperity and a decent standard of living for all—remain in a state of intense pain."
How bad have things gotten? How did we get stuck in what now can only be called a depression? And above all, how do we free ourselves? Krugman pursues these questions with his characteristic lucidity and insight. He has a powerful message for anyone who has suffered over these past four years—a quick, strong recovery is just one step away, if our leaders can find the "intellectual clarity and political will" to end this depression now.

A case for valuing the lessons of history...
Krugman presents in a clear way what the government must do to end the current depression. Some highlights are:
1- his explanation of the current situation in Europe is very good - he is very clear on why the policy responses in Europe and the US are so different.
2- I would have liked comments on why tax cuts is not a better alternative at this moment.
With so many people hurting, the government must do more!!!!
Excellent book. I highly recommend it.
Well written, witty, very Krugman-esque
This book has filled in all the holes I had about what has happened for the past 5 years as well as what to do now. I wish everyone could read this...
