    In this new, greatly updated edition of The Return of Depression Economics, Krugman shows how the failure of regulation to keep pace with an increasingly out-of-control financial system set the United States, and the world as a whole, up for the greatest financial crisis since the 1930s. He also lays out the steps that must be taken to contain the crisis, and turn around a world economy sliding into a deep recession.

    Overall

    I've followed Krugman in the NYT for some time, so was much gladdened by the appearance of his work on Audible. The work requires the listener pay attention -- not as if you were defusing a bomb, but definitely more than a piece of pure fiction. The historical perspectives are truly enlightening in their own right, but as the basis for understanding the present superbly invaluable. Krugman's analysis is supported my much experience, data, and a superbly trained eye. That's why I think this work can be fairly classified as neutral in political perspective. He lets the evidence make his point and strengthen his conclusions, which makes for, in my mind, a very credible description of why we are where we are, and where we need to go next. As I said at the onset one needs to focus when listening as the work will engage one's critical listening skills if your to enjoy the work. Again, a masterful piece of historical analysis and explanation of the present. Well worth the buy!!

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    "Great Listen! Rich in narrative and description."
    Overall

    If you've read the Historian and liked it, you'll like this even better. While there are episodes of great action, it is a rich read to be savored and not rushed. It is well written and very well read. Excellent worth.
