Larry Summers, Others Review Blyth Book

April 12, 2013

Mark Blyth has been warning the world about the dangers of austerity for years. His new book, Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea, questions the logic that a government can "cut its way to growth," revealing austerity policy for what it is: "nonsense."

Austerity has been at the center of conversations around the world, on Fox Providence, Marketplace, the Harvard Business Review online, Bloomberg Radio, and TV Ontario, and in the Rumpus, the Financial Times and the Greek financial daily Imerisia.
