Reviews

A very good history of economic thought * Economist * How Markets Fail offers a brilliant intellectual framework . . . fine work * New York Times * An essential, grittily intellectual, yet compelling guide to the financial debacle of 2009 * Geordie Greig, Evening Standard * A powerful argument . . . Cassidy makes a compelling case that a return to hands-off economics would be a disaster * BusinessWeek * This book is a well constructed, thoughtful and cogent account of how capitalism evolved to its current form * Telegraph Books of the Year recommendation * John Cassidy ... describe[s] that mix of insight and madness that brought the world's system to its knees * FT, Book of the Year recommendation * Anyone who enjoys a good read can safely embark on this tour with Cassidy as their guide . . . Like his colleague Malcolm Gladwell [at the New Yorker], Cassidy is able to lead us with beguiling lucidity through unfamiliar territory * New Statesman *
