Hacker and Pierson on What Krugman and Stiglitz Can Tell Us (New York Review of Books)
Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson’s piece in the September 27, 2012 issue of The New York Review of Books, “What Krugman and Stiglitz Can Tell Us,” reviews “End This Depression Now!” by Paul Krugman and “ The Price of Inequality: How Today’s Divided Society Endangers Our Future” by Joseph E. Stiglitz.
It concludes that the central message of Krugman and Stiglitz is that, ”we have a choice. Politics got us into our economic mess, and only a revitalized politics can get us out of it.”
