The Great Recession is more than four years old - and counting. Yet, as Paul Krugman points out in this powerful volley, "Nations rich in resources, talent, and knowledge - all the ingredients for prosperity and a decent standard of living for all - remain in a state of intense pain." With characteristic lucidity and insight, Krugman pursues the questions of how bad the situation really is, how we got stuck in what can now be called a depression and above all, how we free ourselves. He has a powerful message for anyone who has suffered over these past four years - a quick, strong recovery is just one step away, if our leaders can find the "intellectual clarity and political will" to end this depression now.

"Starred review. Krugman (Fuzzy Math), winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Economics, takes an edifying and often humorous journalistic approach to the current economic crisis in this accessible and timely study. Rather than provide a mere postmortem on the 2008 collapse (though relevant history lessons are provided), Krugman aims to plot a path out of this depression. Krugman has consistently called for more liberal economic policies, but his wit and bipartisanship ensure that this book will appeal to a broad swath of readers from the Left to the Right, from the 99% to the 1%." -- Publishers Weekly
"Krugman has picked a good time to unleash a thoroughly persuasive polemic against premature fiscal austerity in the wake of a deep recession. He does so in a remarkably easy style [...] it's lively and readable." -- Financial Times
"Krugman...most hated and most admired columnist in the US..." -- Martin Wolf, Financial Times
"...Krugman divides opinion like no other. To his followers, he's a saint; to his detractors, he's a false prophet with satanic intent." -- Jeremy Warner, Daily Telegraph
"[...]since reading Paul Krugman's new book, I fear I'm in danger instead of becoming a bore. It's the sort of book you wish were compulsory reading, and want to quote to anyone who'll listen, because End This Depression Now! provides a comprehensive narrative of how we have ended up doing the opposite of what logic and history tell us we must do to get out of this crisis." -- Decca Aitkenhead, Guardian G2
"Although it is not without flaws, I hope without much confidence that the book s wide readership includes the UK prime minister and chancellor." -- Samuel Brittan, Financial Times
"Loathe him or love him and Krugman's take-no-prisoners writing style has as many enemies as admirers it is impossible to ignore him." -- Ben Chu, The Independent
"Furious but funny, Krugman's seductive style renders recondite theory readable for even the most economically illiterate." -- Word
"Krugman is "feisty" and "sharp-elbowed": you might disagree with his thesis, but you'll keep on reading." ---- The Week
"In this lively polemic, he [Krugman] makes a powerful case against austerity." --
