The Conscience of A LiberalBook - 2007
With this major new volume, Paul Krugman, "the heir apparent to Galbraith" and today's most widely read economist, studies the past 80 years of American history, from the reforms that tamed the hard inequality of the Gilded Age to the unraveling of that achievement and the reemergence of immense economic and political inequality since the 1970s. Seeking to understand both what happened to middle-class America and what it will take to achieve a "new New Deal," Krugman has created his finest book to date, a work that weaves together a nuanced account of three generations of history with sharp political, social, and economic analysis.
