En simples palabras el libro para entender porque hay que enseñar a pescar y no dar el pescado. A veces se pone un poco complejo, pero creo que es acertada la forma en que está escrito, pero a algunos les puede parecer tedioso, pero vale la pena arriesgarse y terminarlo. Aprendí mucho leyéndolo.
Eduardo Garcia-Gaspar
El autor trata el tema de las depresiones económicas, su origen y solución. Acude a la Gran Depresión, al mal análisis de la economía dominante y a la Gran Recesión, explicando la formación de burbujas, el camino que lleva a ellas y apunta finalmente al camino para evitar crisis económicas. Un libro básico, bien explicado, especialmente para el novato. Muy recomendable.

Kaiser explains in simple language why Keynesians are wrong and Austrians are right.

Un libro imprescindible para entender el origen de las dos últimas grandes crisis económicas (1929 y 2008), y el por qué vamos a velocidad de crucero hacia la mayor recesión que conocerá la historia de la humanidad. La reflexión crítica sobre dicho origen es brutal y sincera, muy alejada del vano intento de los gurús económicos predominantes que pretenden tapar con un dedo el sol y pegar la patada hacia delante vía liquidez infinita a través de la emisión de deuda sin arreglar el problema desde ...more

Zelo intrigantno in razmislekov in razprave vredno branje... če ste pripravljeni sprejeti zelo popreproščene razlage, šibko argumentacijo, pomanjkljivo ali dvomljivo operiranje s podatki, saj je cilj ideološko znan in posvečen. Način z miti nad mite je za zvedave bralce čisto zanimiv, vendar je njegova prepričljivost na ravni precej davnih časov, od katerih se je v svetovnem gospodarstvu zgodilo še marsikaj drugega kot ustanovitev Fed v ZDA.

“the only way in which a whole country may save is by reducing its consumption.  Consumption is therefore the destruction of wealth, whereas savings makes it possible to multiply it. Let us take a similar example to that given by the great Austrian economist, Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, to illustrate how underconsumption —savings— is what permits the formation of the so-called “capital goods”, which are so necessary to increase productivity as well as future consumption.[12]” 0 likes
“Needless to say, this idea that the origin of prosperity is hard work and frugality was exhaustively formulated by Adam Smith in The Wealth of Nations.  Among the many reflections that highlight this idea of Smith’s, the following is very much to the point: ‘It seldom happens, however, that great fortunes are made even in great towns by any one regular, established, and well-known branch of business, but in consequence of a long life of industry, frugality, and attention”.  Smith believed that the same was applicable to a whole country, whose prosperity depended on frugality, economic freedom and disposition towards hard work.” 0 likes
