Book Overview
Michael Hudson is one the world's foremost critics of contemporary financial capitalism. He is also one of a tiny handful of eminent economists who is leading us to look at old questions in startling new ways. Professor Hudson is the author numerous books on international finance and economic history, and a frequent contributor to leading newspapers and public affairs sites. There are few people alive who have taught me more than Michael Hudson. The incisive and brilliant essays in this book should really be assigned to every first-year student of economics. The fact they never will be is the ultimate testimony to the fact economics has betrayed its own most noble tradition - and Hudson here so magnificently embodies - to become a sheer instrument of power. David Graeber, author of Debt: the First 5,000 Years and co-organizer of Occupy Wall Street Michael Hudson... I consider to be the best economist in the West. The Saker Economist's theoretical edifice does not explain economic reality. Economists need to begin anew. Michael Hudson shows them the way. Paul Craig Roberts, Institute for Political Economy
