About this book
In the graveyard of economic ideology, dead ideas still stalk the land. Despite the financial crisis, the theory that market-based solutions are always best still abounds. Quiggin lays bare the dangers of ideas whose time has gone, and looks ahead, arguing that a simple return to Keynesian economics and the politics of the welfare state will not be enough to kill off dead ideas or prevent future crises.
In the graveyard of economic ideology, dead ideas still stalk the land. The recent financial crisis laid bare many of the assumptions behind market liberalism. This title explains how these dead ideas still walk among us - and why we must find a way to kill them once and for all if we are to avoid an even bigger financial crisis in the future.
