Never Let a Serious Crisis Go to Waste: How Neoliberalism Survived the Financial Meltdown

by: Philip Mirowski

Publisher: Random House Books (2014)


Staff Pick by comrade: Lucas

This erudite look into the politics-by-other-means of the Hayek and Friedman set is a disturbing laying bare of our current economic reality, as long as you can make it past the pomposity and ostentation of Mirowski's first chapter. Well worth the read, chapter two onward.
