Don't Do Like Ramgoolam, Buy From Amazon

Meet another fine pick I read a few months ago. It's by Krugman and it should be compulsory reading for anyone who has anything to do with policy-making or who participates in the increasingly interesting debates going on in our country.

Here's a quote from the preface of the 1994 bestseller: "And I was angry over the way that bad economics and spurious claims of success were being used to justify a program that helped the rich and hurt the poor while doing nothing positive for the economy". Doesn't that ring a bell?

The 10-chapter book contains down-to-earth sections on income distribution, growth and budget deficit. Enough said. I don't want to steal Krugman's thunder. Just click on the following pic and be different from Navin.
