Reviews

A crisp and pungent book -- Rowan Williams * Prospect *
"How much is enough?" is a good question. Anyone who sets store by capitalism and markets will find [this] book uncomfortable reading. It should be read all the same * Economist *
A truly innovative and radical perspective on reshaping the economy ... thought-stirring and extremely refreshing -- John Gray * Guardian *
A welcome call to reinvigorate society's ethical aspect and bring about the good life for everyone * New Yorker *
In their thoughtful book, the Skidelskys move seamlessly from the abstract to the concrete; from philosophy to public policy. They note that Keynes's futuristic essay was ignored as the world sank into the Great Depression. Will we again ignore this call to imagine a better future? -- Jon Cruddas MP * Independent *
