I have a masters in economics and thus see myself as knowing my fair share on the subject. I knew of Keynes, the Austrian school, the New Deal, the Japanese recession and about the gold standard before, but this book really gave me a theory I could accept as plausible.
I read Paul Krugmans "The Return of Depression Economics" and compared to "Meltdown" Krugmans theory for a solution does just not hold as much weight as the Austrian theory. The worrying thing is that USA now seems to go for Krugmans "easy fix" (=illusion) instead of accepting the inconvenient truth.
USA now seems to be in for another "lost decade" together with Japan and with its second one...
