No one has more authority to call the shots the way they really are than Paul Krugman, whose provocative New York Times columns are keenly followed by millions. One of the world's most respected economists, Krugman has been named America's most important columnist by the Washington Monthly and columnist of the year by Editor and Publisher magazine.In this long-awaited work containing Krugman's most influential columns along with new commentary, he chronicles how the boom economy unraveled: how exuberance gave way to pessimism, how the age of corporate heroes gave way to corporate scandals, how fiscal responsibility collapsed. From his account of the secret history of the California energy crisis to his devastating dissections of dishonesty in the Bush administration, Krugman tells the uncomfortable truth about how the United States lost its way. And he gives us the road map we will need to follow if we are to get the country back on track.

It is now the year 2016, 13 years after this book's publication date. Is there anyone alive who still hasn't figured out that Wall Street shill, Paul Krugman, who is now shamelessly attacking the economist Bernie Sanders is relying upon, is a complete farce?
Krugman actually stated publicly he believes banks only lend from funds on hand - - he has NO CONCEPTION of the fractional reserve system!
Krugman actually stated back in 2009, that the oil price surge was strictly supply & demand, even though the Baltic Dry Index had collapsed! [massive speculation, especially by Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley on the InterContinental Exchange].
Krugman actually stated that the cause of the Global Economic Meltdown was too much household debt - - giving the banksters a free pass on their global Ponzi scheme of Credit Default Swaps on trashy CDOs, et cetera!
It would take too much space to state all the idiocies the lobbyist for the central banks has claimed - - instead just check out how long he's been with the Group of Thirty [].

Doubting that the person using a number as an alias is Prof. Krugman, but the book's still worth taking a close look at.
