Hardly, this book connects to the contemporary crisis rather repeatedly talks about some of the economic theory and analysed it. I was really impressed by the cover and title but I found that content is misleading, it never talks about the present situation or how to avoid the crisis in the near future.
I think it's the hubris of the Lord to write this book.
As students of economics, we know the reason behind the failure of prediction. Because our models never based on the true assumption that's

By Edward Chancellor

The response of the dismal scientists to their collective failure to anticipate the global financial crisis has been dispiriting. Economists have refused to set aside their abstruse models, even though these models failed to predict the economic catastrophe. During the boom years, almost all economists applauded Alan Greenspans easy money policy. After the bust, the same people continue to deny in the face of common sense - that the low interest rates of Greenspans Federal

An interesting read for the people who want to understand about what, how and why of the financial crisis.

The book offers a fascinating ride on the evolution of economics, the key academicians and their economic theories, cause of the financial crisis, why economists were not able to notice the crisis and finally on how to avoid the future crisis.

Even though the book has articulated the initial part 'why economists failed to predict the crisis' is a remarkable manner, it couldn't do equal

A deep dive on the birth and evolution of the economics. Presented an otuside view/ neutral perspective on world economic order as it shifted from one ideology to the other and it lead to the epic crisis of 2008.

Important Lessons : one ideology is not always ideal, with changing times ideas become relevant or vice-versa.

Have economists been collectively asleep at the wheel and failed to see the wood for the trees, allowing society to walk into a sudden global financial crisis and recession? Or is this excusable. Is there the potential to forecast the next big one and try and mitigate its effects?

This book tried to argue a partial disconnection, suggesting that economists need to reengage with the history of economic thought and be receptive to insights that might give clues towards a future meltdown, yet at

In seeking to answer the twin questions of why (most) economists were taken by surprise by the crash of 2008 and what can be done to avert a repeat, Desai goes digging in the history of economic thought.

This part of the book - most of it - is an excellent summary of the history of the discipline from Adam Smith onwards. The exposition of some moderately complex is clear without 'dumbing down' at all.

In deriving from this exploration a set of tools to prevent or predict a recurrence, however,

A very disappointing read. The title is completely misleading, the author doesn't discuss the crisis until the final chapter and never discusses how to avoid further crises. Most of the book is economic history, discussing economists from the 19th and 20th century, with little connection to the current crisis. Little of what is said is new or different from what has already been written, if you're read economics books before, you won't find anything new. The writing is also quite bland and ...more
