A Country Is Not A Company
Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2013
I read Krugman's pamphlet " A Country Is Not A Company" because I was tired of the political talking points and spin engendered by the austerians on the right and the anti-government corporatist supporters wringing their hands and expressing faux fears about our national government debt. As usual Krugman carefully parses the difference. Quote:"...economics and business are not the same subject, and mastery of one does not ensure comprehension, let alone mastery, of the other.A successful business leader is no more likely to be an expert on economics than on military strategy." " For though no one will believe it-economics is a technical and difficult subject."
