Professor of Economics and International Affairs at Princeton University, and award winning NY Times columnist Paul Krugman was in town stumping for his latest book, " THE GREAT UNRAVELING: Losing Our Way In the New Century".
The book weaves together Krugman's most influential Op-Ed columns from the The New York Times and other publications with substantial new material, including a powerful introductory chapter that places the outrages of recent years in context. This book tells a tale of promise betrayed. From irrational exuberance to corporate scandals, from the looting of California to the false pretenses used to sell an economic policy that benefits only a small elite, Krugman shows - with wit, passion and a unique ability to explain complex issues in plain English - how the nation has been misled. Paul Krugman has been named America's most important columnist by the Washington Monthly and columnist of the year by Editor and Publisher magazine. His twice weekly Op-Ed columns in The New York Times are read by millions.

Sephiroth

I don't agree with everything in the book but Krugman's THE GREAT UNRAVELING covers his anti-rightist frustrations very clearly and explains some of the problems with the Voodoo Economics theory on Wall Street.
