Reviews

'This book is a profound and panoramic study of the most powerful but destructive economic force of our time - financialization. Based on a sophisticated modern reinterpretation of Marxist theories and in-depth empirical analysis, the book comes up with bold and fundamental reform proposals. It is a must-read for anyone who is committed to progressive economic and social transformation.'
Ha-Joon Chang, Author of 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

'The growing dominance of global finance over the past generation ushered in the Wall Street crisis of 2007-09, and, along with it, mass unemployment and punishing austerity policies throughout the world. Building from his command of both the Marxian tradition and alternative theoretical perspectives, Costas Lapavitsas provides both a wide panorama and fresh insights as to how "finance exploits us all." Profiting Without Producing is a major contribution to our understanding
of financialization and its discontents.'
Robert Pollin, Political Economy Research Institute, University of Massachusetts-Amherst

'Costas Lapavitsas has provided an original account of the difficulties that economies will face recovering from the 2008 economic crisis. It is not an optimistic picture, but one that people should struggle with.' Dean Baker, Center for Economic and Policy Research 'This work is clearly a masterpiece on the financialized capitalism of our age.'
Makoto Itoh, Professor Emeritus, University of Tokyo Praise for Crisis in the Eurozone "This book is indispensable for anyone trying to make sense of the European Union's implosion."--Alex Callinicos, Professor of European Studies, King's College London "Crisis in the Eurozone combines the urgency of front-line reporting with insightful detail about the players involved and mechanisms at work."--Gary A. Dymski, Professor of Economics, University of California, Riverside "The most comprehensive, thoughtful, and insightful dissection of the Eurozone's problems. If you could only read one item on this momentous crisis, this book would be it."--Stergios Skaperdas, Professor of Economics, University of California, Irvine
